Gateshead Council, as part of its Care Act 2014 provision of information and advice, has established an Adult Social Care website.
The aim of the Adult Social Care website (the website) is to enable providers of care and support services (Providers) to advertise their services to people in and around Gateshead.
Providers that agree to the following terms and conditions and offer services in the Gateshead area that fit into the categories listed below are invited to submit advertising content to be placed on the website by completion of the form.

For the avoidance of doubt, Gateshead Council does not endorse, accredit, approve or recommend any of the Providers that advertise their services on the website and Providers must not state or imply that this is the case.
It is the Provider’s responsibility to make sure that any advert placed on the website is factually correct and free of errors or omissions.
