Volunteering

 
   

Volunteering is one of Gateshead's greatest assets with 34 per cent - thats 55,000 of Gateshead residents taking part regularly in a volunteering activity.

Volunteer month June 2014

We want as many local authorities and organisations to get behind our call to ‘take part and get involved’ in volunteering this June.  If you are planning an event let us know and sign our pledge.
