‘NTW’ iphone and ‘NTW’ android
Free – Northumberland, Tyne & Wear provide a free app which has all of their self help guides available so you can access these on your phone. Each self help guide is accessible as a written resource and there are brief video introductions for which leaflet might be suitable. They should also be available in audio file although when I’ve tried to use it that hasn’t worked. You can access their audio files online. May be helpful in signposting someone to information after an assessment whilst waiting for further sessions.
available for Android and iPhone
