  • Volunteering


Being a volunteer with Grace House North East can be very interesting and fulfilling, it’s also an opportunity to gain work experience and something to add on to your C.V. Our volunteers give their time, energy and enthusiasm to support us in all aspects of promoting and running the charity, maintaining the building, and raising vital funds. We could not do it without our team.

Volunteering roles include:


If you have less time to give or don't want to make a regular commitment, this is the volunteering opportunity for you! You can commit to as little as two hours a year and still do a great deal to raise funds for Grace House! You could just help by distributing Grace House collection tins in your local area.

All volunteers will be asked to provide the names of two people who can vouch for your suitability to volunteer for Grace House. Some volunteering roles also require volunteers to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check - formerly known as a CRB check. Under Section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exception Order 1975) spent convictions must also be declared.

Corporate Supporters

Companies can support Grace House by donating their staff's time.

Imagine freeing up ten people in your business, for five hours twice a year. The impact on your business may be minimal, but the impact at Grace House will be huge.

Those 100 hours can transform a patch of garden that needs landscaping, or can create a mural along one whole corridor. If we can guarantee our volunteer hours, we can then draft specialist landscape or mural artists in to guide them.

Your company can support Grace House by enabling some of your employees to give us their time. Typically, a group of staff come to Grace House at an agreed date and time, and help us launch, progress or complete a key project. Please email or telephone 0191 5252885 and we would be glad to meet up to discuss further
