Volunteer Centre Newcastle

  • Based in Newcastle, England
  • Connects volunteers to meaningful opportunities across the city
  • Opportunities are not Volunteering Matters’ projects

Volunteer Centre Newcastle acts as a connector between people and their communities. We create relationships with a range of people from volunteers and local charities to social enterprises and social groups.

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 volunteer’s individual wants and needs and fit around their schedule.

Whether volunteers are working full-time, part-time or are currently unemployed, retired, or in education we try to find opportunities to suit them.

Volunteering brings so much to the volunteer, from improved confidence to heightened social experience and employability, and all of our opportunities provide something unique.

We support volunteers looking to find suitable roles, as well as those responsible for recruiting, managing or training volunteers within an organisation.

You can expect an expert level of support in all issues relating to volunteering. We offer in-person or online appointments, which can be booked by contacting us. To access our service you need to live, work, learn or want to improve the communities within Newcastle.

We can support any size of group, charity or individual that wishes to recruit, manage or establish a volunteer program in Newcastle.

For coordinators, our support offer includes good practice sharing, training for volunteer coordinators, mentoring, advertising roles and an organisational health check, to ensure your volunteer program is set up to succeed. We also try to support companies looking at group volunteering opportunities for their staff.

For individuals, we offer support in finding suitable volunteering opportunities based on your availability, volunteering goals and any access requirements you may have.
