New Year Volunteer Recruitment Fair: Saturday 26 January

Make a difference in 2019 – Volunteer!

If you want to do something special in 2019, why not consider making it your New Year’s resolution to volunteer?

There are a huge number of benefits to volunteering – it’s a fantastic way to meet new people, take on a new challenge, learn new skills and give something back to your local community. You can volunteer as often or as little as possible, and no matter what your age, skills, ability or experience, there will be a volunteering role to suit you.

In order to let people know about the wide range of volunteering opportunities available in North Tyneside, we are holding a New Year Volunteer Recruitment Fair on Saturday 26 January 2019, from 10am to 3pm at The Forum Shopping Centre in Wallsend.

There will be stalls and information from a range of voluntary and community organisations who all involve volunteers in their work, as well as members of VODA’s friendly staff team on hand to answer any queries you have and tell you about our own volunteering project.

There is no need to book – simply call in to the Forum between 10am and 3pm!

  • A salary benchmarking service, which makes use of the valuable data it holds on sector jobs in the region to provide you with insight into fair and appropriate wages
