About Us

Collaborative Newcastle is an innovative new partnership which aims to improve the health, wealth and wellbeing of everyone in the City.

Unique in scope and scale, Collaborative Newcastle brings together the NHS, local government, higher education, voluntary and community sector in Newcastle. We’re combining efforts, expertise and resources to achieve a single, shared vision. Working collaboratively and creatively, we aim to: reduce inequalities; tackle some of the big things that hold people back; and provide better opportunities for all.

There are three pillars which underpin Collaborative Newcastle:

• Health and Care

• Growth and Prosperity

• Net Zero Newcastle
