Volunteering can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can get involved in.

We have many volunteering opportunities across County Durham and these can be very varied; it all depends on what you would like to do.

We are proud to have been awarded the Volunteer Kite Mark

Community Health Champions:

Community Health Champions are people who are local and can commit to at least 2 hours of volunteering per week. Following a period of training and support, Community Health Champions will voluntarily transform the health and wellbeing of people in their communities. Community Health Champions are mentored by a paid member of staff within the wellbeing for life service and have access to a wide range of training and personal development opportunities. Within their role, Community Health Champions will support and motivate people to get involved in healthy social activities, create groups to meet local needs and help local people to access services in their local community.

Don’t worry if being a Community Health Champion is not what you want to do… We can connect you to other volunteering opportunities in your local community.

No volunteering opportunity is too little… it all makes a big impact.

Check out the stories of our volunteers and what motivated them to get involved.
