How to find us

Open Clasp's office is in the Stephenson Building, also home to West End Women & Girl's Centre, on Elswick Road, Newcastle upon Tyne. The building is on the left as you head along Elswick Road from town, with a zebra crossing right outside, just before Elswick Park. You can get the number 30 or 31 bus from Newcastle town centre. If you're coming by car there is parking on the opposite side of Elswick Road, just take the first right after passing the Stephenson building.
