Crisis is looking for 11,000 volunteers to help run their homeless shelters between 23-30 December. Check the Crisis Newcastle website for further information and find out how you could support someone over Christmas.
Given the historically high demand for places we recommend that you register as soon as possible if you are interested, particularly if you want to work ‘normal’ hours. If you volunteer please email Victoria Faulder to let us know. All civil servants have the opportunity to take at least 3 days of special paid leave each year for volunteering and it is important that we record that this is happening.
