We need your help

Volunteers are essential to the success of Age Concern Northumberland. Without volunteers the organisation and all its services would not exist. Volunteers contribute towards maintaining the high quality of the service given. They play a major role in the management of the organisation, the activities undertaken and the development of new and innovative services. They are the backbone of all the services we provide.

If you have time to spare please help us to help others. Call Age Concern Northumberland on 0845 140 00 88, where a member of staff will be delighted to discuss with you the variety of ways in which you could help
