Information and Advice
"I'd encourage anyone to approach Age UK North Tyneside for help, advice and support, don't hesitate to get in touch. If you don't buy the raffle ticket you'll never claim a prize and for us this was the best prize we could have hoped for. We'd not have dreamt of reapplying had we not been encouraged by Age UK North Tyneside to do so and Tom has been amazing, he's supported us every step of the way. This has improved our lives beyond belief."
