There is a volunteering opportunity for everyone, regardless of age, ability, health, or life experiences, and Gateshead Volunteer Centre can provide extra support.  Our experienced and friendly staff can help you find and access the right volunteering opportunity for you.  Depending on what you need, we can support your journey into volunteering by:  

  • Arranging a 1-2-1 meeting to look at how volunteering could benefit you and find opportunities relating to your needs.
  • Helping you complete any paperwork that may be required and making personal introductions.
  • A named contact to offer confidential advice and guidance.

Come and have a chat about volunteering at one of our drop-in sessions held in community venues across Gateshead - or contact us directly at volunteering@connectedvoice.org.uk to arrange a time to chat.
