In this issue we are proud to announce the new naming partner for the transformational Newcastle Gateshead arena and conference centre. The project, which is a great example of our aspirations for Gateshead and the wider region, will create jobs and will attract millions more visitors to the North East.

Investment in Gateshead vital as we continue to face an enormous challenge to set our budget. Over the last ten years we have had to make cuts of £179 million at a time when the need for our services is greater, and costs have never been higher. You can read how we're using reserves this year to give us a short period of time so that we can undertake a fundamental review of the budget and develop a new approach to budgeting to make the Council more sustainable in the future. 

Caring for our communities is at the heart of everything we do. In this issue you can read more about the national 'Made with Care' recruitment campaign to encourage more people to take up a career in care. 

Along with our regular features, you can also find out more about a new service for job seekers, our ambitious plans for housing, improvements to road layouts which will help improve traffic in the town centre and a reading for wellbeing project set up by author Ann Cleeves.
