Welcome to the Summer issue of Council News. We are delighted to feature Sandra Armstrong as our cover star after her amazing double gold winning performance at the Special Olympic World Games. There are lots of ways people with special needs and disabilities in Gateshead can excel and you can read about some of the opportunities we can provide to help people make a positive impact in their local area.

We have welcomed five new councillors to Gateshead and you can find out more about who represents you and your area in our special 'Know Your Councillor' pullout. 

We are focused on making sure housing in the borough works for residents and have adopted a new strategy that will ensure people who live or want to live in Gateshead have access to homes that meet their needs. 

The important role that carers fulfil in our community is highlighted in this issue and we are looking forward to celebrating them during Carers Week in June. We recognise the difficulties sometimes faced by carers and there is information on where you can find help and support.

We want residents to get involved in their community during Volunteers Month. Last year we recorded more than 113,000 hours of voluntary work in one month alone and hope we can exceed that amount this year. 

We also include our regular features including health matters, what's on and key activities including the World Transplant Games which is coming to NewcastleGateshead in August.
