Our Culture and Vision

Peer support is the key focus of our culture here, with an emphasis upon:

  • People making an individual choice about attendance and participation.

  • A greater membership participation in the running of the clubhouse.

  • A determined effort being made to use peer support approaches in developing activities at the clubhouse.

Our final destination of a truly user-led service has now been reached, which is highly innovative, flexible in what it offers, empathetic and life changing. We know that with the skills, confidence and experience that our members have achieved over the last few years that we are in an excellent position to continue bringing our truly unique vision to the residents of Gateshead.
