Our Skills for Life team are currently looking for volunteers to support our learners in their English and maths classes. Our learners have a wide range of abilities, which means that volunteering is interesting, challenging and rewarding. Sessions are held at the Heaton Centre, Trewhitt Road Heaton and also at Westgate College, on the West Road.

If you would be interested in volunteering, and want to know what it involves, please contact Gill Thompson at the Heaton Centre on 0191 2782822.
