Carers UK have developed Jointly, which is a mobile and online tool designed to help people looking after someone. It aims to make caring a little easier.

Jointly combines group messaging with other useful features including to-do and medication lists, calendar and more. Jointly works on iPhone, iPad, Android devices and on most modern web browsers (home computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets etc).

Jointly is now being offered FREE of charge by Newcastle City Council to all carers in Newcastle. To access Jointly, go to (online only) and sign up to create an account.
