North Tyneside Volunteer Network provides a friendly and supportive environment for staff/volunteers who are responsible for volunteer management in their organisation to network with staff/volunteers from other organisations who have similar responsibilities.  The Network meetings, which are facilitated by VODA, provide an opportunity to share good practice, exchange ideas and develop joint initiatives.  Regular topics include changes in volunteer policy and legislation, funding possibilities and local training available to volunteers.   There is also an opportunity for organisations to provide an overview of their work or of specific projects that may be of interest to others.

Meetings take place every two months at VODA, Queen Alexandra Campus, North Shields and new participants are always welcome.

The meeting dates for 2018 are:

  • Monday 5 February
  • Monday 23 April
  • Tuesday 19 June
  • Tuesday 11 September
  • Monday 12 November

The Network meetings run between 10am and 11.30am with a chance to network before and after the meeting.
