Where We Work

We work throughout the whole of the north east area and we pride ourselves on being a local social care provider.

We understand the communities that our people live in and because of this, we can focus on the demographics, diversity and needs of local people.

“The changes in Karl since Coquet Trust started to support him are just phenomenal. He’s opened up as a person, not just leaps and bounds but chasms. He’s much more independent and his social circle is widening every day.”
Kath Bennett – Grandmother of someone we support
“My two housemates are great, me and Phillipe knew each other before we lived together and we both met Karl before the house was even finished. I like that we are treated equally so one get’s left out of anything. If I am upset I can talk to my Key Worker who helps with any problems I may have”
MM – Person we Support
"I am happy with all the staff who help me at Coquet Trust. The staff take me shopping and to Norham College and to church on Sunday. Bev and Gayle came with me on my holiday. I had a good time”
