Our volunteers are, quite simply, amazing.  They work together to make a positive impact on the lives of older people across Gateshead and we couldn’t do what we do without them.

We invest heavily in our volunteers and will provide you with a variety of opportunities to learn new skills, gain qualifications where appropriate, and make new friends.  We also have a policy of advertising all employment opportunities to our pool of active volunteers in the first instance.

Currently, our volunteers help by:

  • serving on our board
  • cooking in our community café 
  • serving in our community café
  • tending our community garden
  • leading our social groups
  • leading our activity groups
  • teaching our short courses
  • assisting with marketing and promotion

If you would like to help in any of the above ways (or have a skill you'd like to share with our beneficiaries), please contact our Activities & Volunteering Coordinator on 0191 438 1721.  We'd love to hear from you!
