Teams and Bensham Community Care

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 65 years of age in Gateshead.

Our popular lunch clubs and men's groups are well loved due to our freshly cooked, two course meals, warm and welcoming environment and our dedicated, caring team who make every guest feel included and valued. Each lunch club has great food, wonderful company, and plenty of activities, games and quizzes and if there is something to be celebrated, you can guarantee that we will do it in style. We also have a card making group every Tuesday morning followed by lunch. 

Our two course meals are prepared each day by our wonderful cooks. There's plenty of baked goods to take home too. Our regular attendees from the local area benefit from peace of mind when they are unable to come to the centre while recovering from illness or injury, as we will always deliver a hot meal to them at home if wanted.

If you live locally, why not use our accessible minibus that can pick you up from your door, bring you to our centre and take you home again afterwards. Transport is available in Teams, Bensham, Lobley Hill, Dunston, Salwell and Central Gateshead. If you're unsure if you live in our catchment area, send us a message or call us on 0191 4600297.

Help needed.


Our charity has volunteer opportunities, Monday to Friday, from mid morning to mid afternoon.

By volunteering with us, you not only give something back to the community you also learn valuable new skills and knowledge and make lots of new friends.

From serving lunches and a cuppa, helping out with activities, or simply chatting to our beneficiaries, can really make a difference to an older person's day.
