About We Are Newcastle

WeAreNewcastle is being delivered by NewcastleGateshead Initiative, on behalf of Newcastle City Council, following funding from the Government’s Welcome Back fund via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The aim of the campaign is to help local areas stimulate their economic development by delivering projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regeneration. WeAreNewcastle is focused on eight neighbourhoods and high streets across the city; Elswick (West Road and Adelaide Tce); Byker; Heaton (Heaton Road and Chillingham Road; Ouseburn; Gosforth and the Quayside. The local pride campaign followed extensive research in each area to establish current shopping trends, barriers preventing people visiting and what was needed in each area to encourage new visitors. WeAreNewcastle will promote each area’s individual identity from the foodie heaven of Heaton to the arty and eclectic Ouseburn.
