VOLUNTEERS: Improving lives daily

editorial image

Every day thousands of young people across Northumberland are helped to improve their lives by the 247 inspiring people who volunteer for The Children’s Society.

I want to say thank you to all our volunteers and supporters for their incredible contribution to support our work with young people affected by issues such as abuse, hardship and neglect.

There are 59,794 children in Northumberland and 2,900 are classed as children ‘in need’. The Children’s Society’s volunteers, campaigners and supporters make an enormous difference by supporting young people in our projects, helping in our charity shops, and raising funds and awareness.

We’re celebrating being re-awarded the Investing in Volunteers quality standard, which means we are one of the top organisations to volunteer for.

If you would like to talk to us about how you could get involved, visit childrenssociety.org.uk/volunteer or call 0300 303 7000.
