Sadly, after many years of providing a successful out of hours service the Gateshead Out of Hours Service will close on 31st March 2019 due to the withdrawal of its funding.  Unfortunately the Gateshead telephone support service will also no longer be available from 31st March 2019.

However we are pleased to confirm that Gateshead Clubhouse (who are a community group separate from MHM, but who hosted the Out of Hours services for several years) have extended their opening hours. The Clubhouse will now be operating seven days a week, including the previous opening times of our Out of Hours service, meaning that those people who used the service will still have a place to go and find support.

From the 30th March 2019 the Clubhouse will be open 364 days a year (the only closure being New Year’s Day), from: 11.00am - 4:30pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 11.00am - 8.00pm on a Thursday and from 12:30pm to 4:00pm, on Saturday and Sunday.  You can call the Gateshead Clubhouse on 0191 440 9033 during these times for more information.

Julie Laverick, the Locality Manager who has overseen the Out of Hours service, said: “MHM would like to say thank you to all of the people who have accessed the service over the years, and to say thank you to the Clubhouse for the support and commitment they have shown to the people who attended the service and to the staff.”

Julie Haley, Director of Social Care at MHM, added: “MHM have had the pleasure of delivering an Out of Hours service to the people of Gateshead for a number of years. It is a sad day, but we know that Gateshead Club house will continue to thrive. We would like to wish the Gateshead Clubhouse and all that use the service the very best in their future endeavours!”
