Our Gateshead

Teams and Bensham Community Care

About us: 

Teams and Bensham Community Care is a Registered Charity (1122735) providing a range of high quality services and activities which are available to people over 60 years of age or disabled people living in the following areas of Gateshead:-







Do you or a loved one sit at home each day with no company and struggle to get out and about using public transport? Contact us on 0191 4600297 and speak to Eileen McMaster to discuss which of our activities you or your loved one would find beneficial.

We provide a range of activities 5 days every week, Monday to Friday. We also have our own minibus to provide transport to and from all of our activities.


Daily Activity Clubs

These are held in Eslington Communal Lounge, with a freshly cooked 2 course lunch each day and a range of activities including arts and crafts, domino competitions, quizzes, chair exercises, days out, party days, bingo and raffles. The activity days are held 5 days each week and are suitable for ladies and gentlemen. Members can attend as many days as required and transport is provided. A meal delivery service is also available if you or your loved one are unable to attend the day clubs.


Exercise, Aquafit and Walking Club

We have an exercise session each Monday with a fully trained instructor, with exercises specifically suitable for older people and anyone with mobility problems. We have an Aquafit session on a Wednesday afternoon where our fully trained instructor delivers suitable exercises in the water for elderly people. Our walking club meets once a month and travels to various, picturesque walking venues throughout Tyne and Wear and Northumberland. To find out more and to check available spaces, please contact Eileen on 0191 4600297 or 0191 4900945.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you have time to spare each week and would like to become involved as a volunteer to help local older people to age well, please give Eileen a ring on 0191 4600297 or 0191 4900945 to discuss the opportunities.
