We also signpost within our extensive networks to help you find the information and support you need.

Keeping you informed

We publish regular research and reports about the voluntary sector and wider communities in Newcastle and Gateshead. Our blog,  email newsletters and Inform magazine are an excellent source of information about other organisations, funding opportunities, sector trends and policy updates.

Helping individuals

Our Advocacy Centre North (ACN) service provides free expert support to individuals to help them be aware of their rights and choices, make informed decisions, advocate for themselves and facilitate their voices being heard. ACN also informs and influences decision makers in policy, service commissioning and provision to achieve positive change.
