Here at LD:NorthEast we really value the mutual benefits of volunteering and with over 40 volunteers at any one time, we are really grateful for all of the support we receive. Our volunteers have all sorts of skills and experience and make a real difference in supporting our work.
We invest time and resources in our volunteer team and we hope they get as much out of the experience as we do! Volunteering comes in many forms, from people committing much of their week to support us, to the odd hour here and there, depending on what’s going on.
Do you have a talent or skill that you could share? Are you a musician, artist, gardener, listener, organiser, sports enthusiast? Can you commit time or be called upon for one off projects? If so, we would love to hear from you.

Current Volunteering Opportunities
Arts and Craft Volunteer
We are looking for some crafty volunteers on Monday mornings between 10.30am-2.30pm. In the morning, we have a jewellery class where we are learning to make fashionable jewellery to sell at our fundraising events. In the afternoon, we have a sewing class where we make useful things to use around the house and decorative pieces.
Every two weeks on a Saturday between 12-4pm we have a social group. It’s an opportunity for people to eat their lunch among friends, participate in some new activities and try their luck at the quiz.
If you are interested in volunteering for us, call us on 0191 2622261 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
