Volunteering for Newcastle City Council

 We offer  volunteering opportunities within the council which enhance the wide range of services we provide to communities.  To discuss options please contact Volunteer Centre Newcastle by visiting their website.

What can I expect as a Newcastle City Council volunteer?

As a council we aim to provide the best volunteering opportunities and high quality support for those who volunteer with us. You will have a supervisor, who will provide you with a clear role, explaining what is expected of you and when you are needed to volunteer. You should be offered an induction to your role and any relevant training required should be provided.

The amount of time you can spend in a volunteering role is also flexible depending on the time you have available.  The skills you need to volunteer can be the ones you already have, or you could learn and develop new skills in your role.

Is it different if I am under 16?

Some roles will not be suitable for children and young people (if you are under the age of 18), you can check this when you contact us.
