We offer a safe, welcoming girl-only space for girls and young women to try new things, help other people and discover their passions and talents. All while having fun with a ready-made group of friends!
We’re dedicated to girls leading the way – they choose the activities, challenges and events that inspire them, and our volunteers support them to make it happen. Because girls shape and lead everything we do, we know that we’re offering the best opportunities and experiences for girls today.
Normally we meet Tuesday 7-8.30 pm term time only but because of COVID-19 we are unable to meet face-to-face so are having weekly whats app and zoom meetings. We have outdoor meetings in the early evening and at weekend.

Carers Northumberland is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of carers by responding to the needs of carers, informing carers of their rights and entitlements, supporting carers to access help for the person they care for, reducing the social isolation that so many carers feel and empowering carers to have a voice.
Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm
We would usually hold our carers support groups face to face within the community but due to COVID 19 this was not safe, so instead we have been holding all our carers support groups via Zoom and teleconference calls. We also contacted many of our most isolated carers via telephone to see how they were. Due to the success and uptake of our Zoom carers groups we have now started to provide carers workshops via Zoom. We also increased the frequency of our carers newsletter to keep all our carers up to date with ever changing guidance.
Details about all our carers groups and workshops can be found on our newsletter and on our Facebook page. Carers can register themselves on our website, via telephone or professional referrals can be made on their behalf to Carers Northumberland

Cramlington Doorstep Walks is a series of way marked short walks in and around the town, suitable for people of all ages and abilities, which are easily accessible ‘from your doorstep’.
The town already has a comprehensive and well established cycling and walking network and the project will help to redefine the routes for local people, while identifying opportunities for further development.
Doorstep walks have been developed in South East, West and North Cramlington, each signposted with colourful new waymarkers stating direction, distances and estimated completion time to walk the coloured route. Information stands have been erected on each walk to explain the various routes and a new glossy leaflet has been created which will be posted to every household in Cramlington throughout July.
The walks vary in length, most being between 1.5 to 3 miles in distance, which could take between 30 minutes to an hour to walk.

They meet weekly and enjoy a varied programme of speakers, quizzes and entertainment.
They also aim to inform members about organisations relating to health and social issues.
This is done with friendly chats over a cuppa in a warm and welcoming environment.
Normally they meet between 10-12 on a Thursday but because of COVID-19 these meetings have been suspended.
The friendship of the group is still being maintained as members have telephoned each other, received postcards and committee members have also made welfare calls.
The committee have held a social-distanced meeting to plan for when they can resume meetings and how to offer support. We will update this post once there is news about meetings resuming.
