About us

Volunteer Centre Newcastle is a project run by Volunteering Matters, which leads the UK in volunteering policy & practice. The Volunteer Centre is a member of NCVO.

NCVO champions the voluntary sector and volunteering. We connect, represent and support voluntary organisations. VCNewcastle holds the Quality Standard for Volunteer Centres.


We provide information, advice and support to:

  • people who would like to volunteer or find out more about volunteering

  • organisations who engage or want to involve volunteers

  • agencies who refer volunteers to our Centre for advice and support.

  • Companies with Corporate Social Responsibility policy who want to engage and support their staff into volunteering

We promote volunteering in Newcastle and work closely with the City Council and Connected Voice to develop volunteer management and infrastructure support. We encourage and develop good practice in volunteer involvement, so that volunteering is open to everyone and is positive and beneficial for all involved.
