Age UK Gateshead relies on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community. Would you like to lend a hand?
Volunteering will give you the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, improve the lives of older people and help support the work we do.
People who can dedicate some of their time. We have a wide range of voluntary roles that are suited to people and their skills.
This depends upon the role that you are interested in. Some roles require as little as an hour a week and some require more, this can be arranged with the volunteer co-ordinator.
