A new volunteering project ‘Gateshead Action Volunteers’ has been launched by the Volunteer Centre Gateshead. This is a one year project offering volunteering taster days to people with a learning disability.
Social support to volunteer will be offered by the project’s volunteer buddies, who are trained and DBS checked.
The project will be offering informal sessions on ‘What is Volunteering? and ‘Volunteering Skills’ before starting to plan one-off volunteering opportunities, including gardening, fundraising, and more.
If you know anyone who may be interested in the project or you would like more information you can get in touch with the Volunteering Centre on (0191) 4784103.
