I Want to Volunteer

our hands on the land

Volunteering is all about giving your time to benefit others. It is also a great way to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Improve your CV
  • Have fun
  • Take on new challenges
  • Improve your confidence

What can I do?

There is a huge range of volunteering opportunities available across North Tyneside. The Volunteer Centre will support you to find an opportunity that matches your interests, skills, and availability. Volunteering can be short-term, part-time, or full-time, depending on how much time you would like to give.

How to get involved:

  • Get in touch to arrange a confidential one to one or telephone interview. Our opening hours are Monday to Thursday 9am – 5pm and Friday 9am – 4.30pm.

Supported Volunteering

Some people need a little more help before they can access and sustain volunteering activities. The Volunteer Centre is able to provide that support through it's Supported Volunteering services, which include training, help finding and contacting placements, help with travel, motivation and emotional support.
