Coronavirus advice for volunteers

Following government guidance we have taken the decision to put the majority of our volunteer roles on hold as they involve face to face contact and group gatherings. 

During difficult and unprecedented times such as these, the Gateshead community will always pull together and as a result there are lots of new support groups starting up and people offering their help.

If you would like to be directed to an active group who may need help with activities such as telephone befriending please email
