Volunteers are an important and valued part of Whitley Bay Big Local (WBBL).
We have a growing number of volunteers in the following areas:
Wellbeing and providing safe, welcoming, social spaces for residents and vulnerable people. We have developed roles especially in ‘hosting’ drop-ins and offering basic support to some of our more vulnerable visitors.
Collection of surplus foods from local supermarkets for sharing at our" pay as you go pantry" We could increase the amount we collect- if we had more volunteers!
With volunteers we are developing initiatives to improve how Whitley Bay looks with a focus on several projects.
If you would like to volunteer with Whitley Bay Big Local please drop in to our community centre at 158 Whitley Road and talk to Sarah Sutton about your role within our organisation. We will introduce you to how the organisation works and your role in it, help you to develop your skills and to provide any training you need.
If you could spare an hour now and then to help us out, please get in touch or complete our volunteer application here!
