Did you know that Life is a charity?
 

Whether you are buying a Science Centre ticket, having a party at Life, hiring one of our rooms for a conference or getting married in the planetarium, you are making a difference. Your contribution supports some of the brilliant work being done on site. For instance, did you know that thousands of babies have been born with help from the Newcastle NHS Fertility Centre based at Life? 

Thanks to your generous support, we are able to engage with all of our visitors to help them find out more about science and the part it plays in their lives. And, of course, to have a great time doing it!

Our purpose is to:

  • inspire everyone in North East England to explore and enjoy science and to discover its relevance to their own lives.

​​​​​​​We are one team and everything we do is rooted in the following values: 

  • Welcoming: our team, our customers and our communities are diverse and we celebrate that! We want everyone to feel comfortable, respected and valued. 
  • Exceptional: our customers and staff deserve the best and we go over-and-above to exceed their expectations.   
  • Honest: we are trustworthy, unbiased and behave fairly, ethically and responsibly at all times.
  • Curious: we encourage everyone to question everything and explore science and technology through hands-on experiences and individual discovery.
  • Entrepreneurial: we’re not scared to push boundaries and try bold, unusual andedgy ways to achieve our ambitions.
  • Collaborative: we will continue to partner those who share our passion and values.​​​​​​​


​Registered charity number 1059607.


“It’s great to be back in my native city of Newcastle. Life Science Centre is a jewel in the region’s crown – a place that fosters creativity, increases scientific literacy and inspires future scientists.”

– Nobel Prize laureate Professor Peter Higgs
