The council and its partners are supporting communities to be more resilient to extreme weather conditions. We are expanding our network of community flood wardens and are looking for volunteers who we can work with in an emergency.
Having local people volunteer as community flood wardens will help us find out what’s happening on the ground. Flood wardens will play a vital role in raising awareness of the dangers of flooding and help their neighbours to stay safe during an emergency.
If you are interested in becoming a Flood Warden please contact Angela Gent on (0191) 643 7072 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Learning support workers
There is a range of volunteering opportunities available with the Adult Learning Alliance:
- supporting in English, maths and IT classes
- helping learners in Preparation for Work courses - helping with employability skills such as interview techniques
- supporting learners with learning difficulties and disabilities
We are keen to hear from anyone aged 16 or over who is interested in volunteering and working with adults and who has a minimum of two hours per week to offer.
Volunteer Learning Support Workers work with a tutor to give extra support to learners. You’ll gain:
- training in how to support teaching and learning
- expertise and experience in supporting teaching
- the opportunity to find out how to progress and become a tutor
The training is free if you volunteer with the Adult Learning Alliance.
