Volunteer Centre Newcastle acts as a connector between people and their communities. We create relationships from volunteers to local businesses, enterprises, social groups and individuals who need a helping hand. We maintain a database of local volunteer opportunities and use our expert local knowledge to discuss volunteering opportunities that are right for the volunteer.
We do our best to ensure that opportunities we find suit the volunteers individual wants and needs, and fit around their schedule. So whether volunteers are still in school, working full-time, part-time or are currently unemployed/retired, we can find opportunities to suit. Volunteering brings so much to the volunteer, from improved confidence, heightened social experience and employability, and all of our opportunities provide something unique.
Coordinators in community groups can expect an expert level of support in all issues relating to volunteering including representation at local, regional and national forums. We are happy to help potential volunteers from age 12 and up who are interested in volunteering within Newcastle. To access our service you need to live, work, learn or want to improve the communities within Newcastle.
We can support any size group, charity, individual that wishes to recruit, manage or establish a volunteer program in Newcastle. This includes good practice sharing, training for volunteer coordinators, mentoring and representing the sector as an infrastructure organisation. We also support companies looking at group volunteering actions for their staff.
