Volunteer With Us


At Children North East, it truly is people who power our work. Volunteers bring many important things to our charity; unique perspectives, new ideas and expertise and the opportunity to grow our impact for babies, children and young people across the North East (and beyond).

Could you…provide mentorship to young people at important moments in their life… help our Families and Parenting team put on fun events for children… provide special expertise, from mental health support to professional service… support us to deliver exciting fundraising events?

All you need to become a volunteer is a passion for improving the lives of babies, children and young people. We’ll provide the training and support you need to feel confident in your role and work with you to find activities that suit what you want to commit to the role. We actively seek volunteers from diverse backgrounds and with different lives and work hard to create an inclusive environment for all. Whoever you are, you can make a difference.
