What we do

Volunteer Centre Newcastle is a member of NCVO and we are the only volunteering brokerage organisation within Newcastle to have met the quality standard known as VCQA

Our VCQA was awarded to us because we deliver the following five core functions at a high professional standard.

These functions are:

  • Brokerage/Signposting

    We give support, advice and seek to match the skills and interests of volunteers with the needs of volunteer involving organisations.

  • Good Practice development

    We promote and encourage good practice in working with volunteers to all volunteer involving organisations. We organise and deliver training for potential volunteers, volunteers, volunteer managers and the volunteering infrastructure.

  • Developing Volunteering Opportunities

    We work in partnership with statutory, voluntary andprivate sector agencies as well asfaith groups. We target specific groups who face barriers to volunteering and work creatively to develop imaginative, non-formal opportunities for potential volunteers.

  • Strategic Development of Volunteering

    Our local expertise in volunteering combined with the extensive networks we have built up means we are well placed to inform strategic thinking and planning at a local and regional level.

  • Voice of Volunteering

    Through engagement with all of our stakeholders we increase and recognise the impact volunteering has locally. We also campaign on issues that have a direct impact on volunteering.
