NESCHA, always keen to recognise the challenges for the workforce in health and social care, is running this conference in such a way that will allow workers, as well as patients, service users and carers, to attend in a way that allows them to attend a succinct, worthwhile learning experience, without great cost in terms of time and expense.

Driving improvements in the delivery and integration of Social Care & Health Services, using best practice in participation – the Conference was a great success down to everybody who was involved
Membership doesn’t cost anything and is open to anyone who shares our values, interests and aims
We have two forms of membership :
Core members are ready involved in, or participate in, other networks like their local Healthwatch, or a GP patient participation group, or a charity aimed at a specific group of people who use services. Core members will be able to share, both ways, the best practice and issues that they see in their networks. Core members are often active in our projects.Learn more
Is for people who want to hear our news, and hopefully answer questions on our app [ see below] but who do not want to make any further commitment. We are generally seeking people who support our aims and have experiences similar to ours, and who might wish to talk to other members for support and advice, but will also add weight anonymously to help influence service providers.Learn more
The North East Social Care and Health Advisors was formed in February 2015 from some of the membership of the former NE Care Advisors. NESCHA is a voluntary organisation with no staff, which serves the NE area from Northumberland to North Yorkshire.
