Representatives from the Alan Shearer Centre will be in Newcastle's iconic Grainger Market this week to let people know about our specialist provision.

The Marketplace Drop in Event Information Day, organised by the City Council, is for families with a child who has a disability or additional needs living in Newcastle and will be open on Wednesday 24 June from 10am to 2pm.

Our Alan Shearer Centre Manager, Amanda Head, and Recreation Coordinator, Tom Parry, will be on hand at the city centre venue to provide details about the free activities available at the Centre as well as give information about our short breaks and specialist residential services.

The Information Day event will also involve representatives from the council's Children with Disabilities Team, family support organisations and care providers.

Anyone who is unable to attend the drop in event, and would like more information about the Alan Shearer Centre, can contact Amanda on 0191 267 8118 or email her at
