Welcome to Newcastle City Council's information portal for volunteers and those interested in volunteering with us.
Volunteers play a vital role in making Newcastle a wonderful place in which to live, work and play.
Hundreds of people of all ages and from all walks of life kindly donate their time and expertise to Newcastle City Council each year, from ushers at the Civic Playhouse to guides at Newcastle Museum, and from wildlife carers at Blackbutt Reserve to volunteer crews working on our natural assets and environmental projects.
Volunteers are also the lifeblood of the numerous committees and advisory panels that operate across the city. That's not to mention the work our volunteers perform to make one-off events and functions a success.
Newcastle City Council wants to recognise and celebrate the contribution of all our volunteers, and to encourage more people to get involved.
We are committed to maintaining best practice in volunteer management. All our people respect and support this commitment.
