Community Connectors

We are looking for people who can find out what is happening in their local communities and neighbourhoods. Get chatting with your local community and look out for information online or while out and about. Community Connectors help us find activities and groups that unpaid carers in Gateshead could attend to help reduce social isolation and improve the quality of life. These activities could include; book clubs, cooking classes, art projects, or perhaps a dog walking group.

Community Connectors also spread the word about Gateshead Carers Association and our services to the local people. You could be anywhere chatting with the community, so there are no formal or specific places to be telling the local people about Gateshead Carers Association.

Being a Community Connector is very flexible and has no set hours. It can easily fit into your normal daily activities. You could be anywhere, chatting to people such as the library, doctors surgery, and hairdressers - be sure to add us into your conversation.

Being a Community Connector involves:

  • Giving regular updates to the volunteer coordinator of any information that you have shared or gathered.
  • Attending events and help with our information stalls
  • Adhering to Gateshead Carers policies and procedures.
  • Attending an induction and have a DBS check
