If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers and giving some of your time and/or skills, we would love to hear from you. Apply here or read on first... If you have been asked to submit a reference please do so here or see the link at the bottom of the page.

There are lots of areas in which we aim to directly support resettled families, including: housing; benefits application; banking and other financial; English language learning (ESOL); education; health; volunteering and employment; community and cultural activities.


We also need volunteers to help with: fundraising; governance; safeguarding; IT support, and other areas.

Not all of our volunteering roles involve direct contact in supporting resettled families. Indeed, most volunteers and most volunteering activities are involved in the planning, preparation, and 'behind the scenes' work.

To apply in confidence, please complete the volunteering application form (will open a google forms document), or if you would like to discuss volunteering with Tyneside Welcomes before applying, please contact us.

If you have been asked to submit a reference for someone applying to be a volunteer with us, please would you complete and submit our Volunteer Reference Form (will open a google forms document?
