Long-Term Condition Project (South Tyneside)

Who we work with

This project can support and empower you if you are aged 50+, live in South Tyneside, and have a long-term health condition. We can help you to:

  • Manage your health condition more effectively
  • Gain new skills or develop existing skills
  • Move towards or into volunteering, training, peer mentoring, or employment

The support we offer

This project will offer you:

  • Tailored advice about how to live a healthier life whilst managing your long-term health condition
  • One-to-one and group support
  • Health/care plan to help you to progress and reach positive outcomes
  • Access and referrals to other appropriate services and groups
  • Activities and events
  • Peer mentor support from others with long-term health conditions
  • Peer mentoring opportunities (including training)
  • Volunteering opportunities (including training)

Other opportunities

As well as supporting participants on the project, we aim to raise awareness of the barriers faced by people aged 50+ with a long-term health condition, in order to help develop services in the future. We want your help in shaping the future!

We will recruit volunteers and peer mentors who have experience of long-term health conditions, in order to draw on their skills and experiences to help support those in their local community and those engaging with the project.

As a volunteer or peer mentor, you will be provided with training, support, and development opportunities through our peer mentor training programme, which is managed by our Peer Mentor Co-ordinator, based in South Tyneside.
