Quite simply, it wouldn’t be possible for us to continue the work we do as a not-for-profit organisation if it wasn’t for the teams of volunteers we can call on. Whether it’s pastoral activities, fundraising, organising events or even helping to renovate and landscape our gardens, the support of local people from all walks of life is integral to our success and to the happiness of our residents. There are over 10,000 volunteers who give additional support to those in Abbeyfield homes across the UK, and Newcastle has some of the most generous volunteers in the country, many of whom have been involved with Abbeyfield for a number of years. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers with a wide range of skills and experience
As a volunteer, your time is an invaluable gift to the residents of our homes. Being involved in the activities we organise both in and away from the Grove and Castle Farm is an opportunity for you to learn more about the care of older people, make new friends or simply to contribute to our community.
