We currently have a volunteering opportunity in the Wallsend area for a volunteer Befriender. If you have a couple of hours to spare and can commit to volunteering with us on a weekly basis, we’d love to hear from you!

We support a young man who is a huge Newcastle United fan, and a season ticket holder for St. James Park. Are you a member of the Toon Army who’d like to spend time talking about the new owners, a post-match run down of goals and missed chances, or if head coach Eddie Howe should be changing the line up? If so, apply via our website or get in touch for further info.

As a volunteer with Creative Support we offer training for your role, access to a volunteer supervisor, an induction, a monthly Volunteer newsletter, and an online volunteer’s peer support group. Together we can make a difference.

Suggested time commitment: 3-5 hours per week

Creative Support is a passionate, inclusive, and anti-racist organisation. We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion, Disability Confident Employer who have recently received Investors in People Silver award. We actively encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and cultures.

We would encourage you to apply to us even if you have not yet had your COVID 19 vaccine. You will be required to have your first COVID 19 vaccine prior to your interview and your second vaccine before you start volunteering with us. This time will be used to complete post interview recruitment checks. Applicants who are unable to receive the vaccination on medical grounds are still welcome to apply with provision of their official NHS COVID pass letter of medical exemption.
