We are here to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action in Middlesbrough


We have developed a new co-ordinated website under the branding 'We Care You Care' which will provide easy to navigate information and advice for carers and professionals. The website will signpost people to services and activities available locally for carers, as well as providing relevant news and policy information in an accessible format.

Kelly Baxter at  MVDA is leading on this project, if you provide services for carers or regularly come into contact with them please get in touch so we can signpost to your services. Contact Kelly by phone on 01642 357853 or email kelly.baxter@mvdauk.org.uk

Regular e-bulletins are produced for WCYC. Keep up to date with local information and developments by subscribing. We also have a WCYC Facebook Page.

We Care You Care

We have produced a series of guides for carers (and those who work to support them) to provide a useful tool to help navigate all the local services and support available. You can pick up a hard-copy from your local GP surgery, community hub or library, or download a copy here:
