We have a great track record when it comes to working with partners to deliver quality services in Gateshead. And during 2014-2015, we worked together with our partners on a number of projects that made a difference to individuals and communities.
- We’ve introduced a multi-agency safeguarding hub in Gateshead to support vulnerable adults (including victims of domestic abuse).
- We established a Land of Oak and Iron Landscape Partnership to work towards delivery of a four-year project, starting in 2016, with support from the National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund.
- Winlaton and Chase Park Community Bases supported people with learning disabilities to tackle the issue of Hate Crime in joint partnership with Northumbria Police.
- The North East Making Smoking History Partnership is supporting the Gateshead proposal for a national scheme to require the licensing of the wholesale and retail supply of tobacco.
- Through the Speakeasy project with health and arts team colleagues, artist led activities created a resource for families and young people to use to better understand awareness and ways to improve their sexual health.
- The Financial Inclusion Network informed agencies of the rollout of Universal Credit in Gateshead (June 2015) and shared new initiatives such as partners developing self-help guides.
- Over 3,350 energy efficiency improvements, including central heating boilers and insulation measures have been delivered across the Warm Up North Partnership.
