We believe that people coming together and undertaking meaningful activity is a brilliant way to build confidence and self-esteem, and to enable people to grow and flourish – for everyone involved!

Do you have an interest or skill that you would like to share with others?

We are always on the lookout for people who can volunteer some time with Tyneside Mind to share a skill or interest with our clients. It's a fantastic way to enhance your CV whilst helping others in the community and, most importantly of all, having some fun!

Past examples include:

  • a creative writing group
  • a photography course
  • a signing group

A member of Tyneside & Northumberland Mind's team will support you in working with our clients around your particular skill, and we can schedule sessions around your availability, making sure that the time, day and duration suits both you and our clients.

To find out more about skill sharing, please email:, telephone: 0191 477 4545 or enquire online.
