Welcome to the South Tyneside Network
The South Tyneside Network offers support with workforce development to over 70 employers in the care sector incorporating establishments which provide: Home Care, Residential/Nursing Care Homes, Mental Health, Voluntary and Learning Disabilities.
On behalf of our members we facilitate training, provide information, advice and guidance relating to legislation on regional and national strategies
We work closely with the Local Authority and the NHS to support the employers with initiatives facilitated by them.
The network has an open board, where members are invited to share best practice and discuss issues in an informal, supportive environment.
The South Tyneside Network board meets 3 times a year, all members are welcome to attend these forums.
All these meetings have guest speakers who discuss topics relevant to members. Representatives from South Tyneside Local Authority Commissioning Team and Clinical Commissioning Group also attend.
We are always looking for new projects that will benefit our members and welcome your suggestions and feedback on how we can best support your needs.
We look forward to continued partnership working with both existing and new members.
