Volunteers needed at Hexham Community Centre

Volunteers Needed!
Can you help out at your local community centre with a range of roles available to suit your interests.

Hexham Community Centre is introducing more activities and groups for local people, with the aim of reducing isolation and loneliness, encouraging more active participation and providing affordable, yet enriching experiences for everyone. 

You can help us by offering a little of your time to help by being an extra pair of hands. If you are interested in any of the roles below please contact Jill at or pop in to the Centre and say hello.

Wednesday Lunchtime (11am - 2pm) Luncheon Club:
Running for over 20 years, Luncheon Club prepares a hot two-course meal for older people living in Hexham and nearby. We require a couple of volunteers to help serve the dinner, clear up and most importantly to chat with the guests. 

Tuesday afternoon (3pm and 5pm) Volunteer Drivers:

On a Tuesday afternoon we host Open Arms an intergenerational afternoon tea and for some members it is tricky to get to us, we are looking into the possibility of pairing up members with a volunteer driver so that they can attend the group. DBS and volunteer driver's insurance will be required.    

Saturdays (10am - 1pm and 1pm - 3pm) Warm Spaces:
In response to the fuel crisis the Centre will be hosting a Community Lounge as part of a Warm Spaces initiative. We require a team of volunteers to greet guests and serve hot drinks.

School holidays (various hours) Craft and Games Sessions:
We are looking to build up a small team of people with an interest in working with children and families to help us deliver school holiday activities for under 10s. A DBS check will be required for this role and hours will vary depending on the programme.

Saturday Afternoons, Crafternoon Tea:
In the New Year we are looking to start a new group bringing together people of all ages, 2 - 102 to share and enjoy crafts. We are looking for keen crafters to help facilitate the sessions, we are happy to be guided by volunteers on how the group should run and grow.

If you are interested in any of these roles please contact Jill at or pop in to the Centre and say hello.
