Welcome to the Good Practice Toolkit offering support and advice around volunteering for and with older people and people with dementia. This toolkit was created by Volunteering Matters project, Network Point Newcastle, commissioned by Newcastle City Council.

The City of Newcastle is very progressive in this space. Newcastle City Council have funded this work on the toolkit and on building the network of organisations to take this work forward.

Within this toolkit we share our good practice and the good practice of our partners across the voluntary sector, providing practical examples. We appreciate that there are some glass ceilings to break on this journey. By following the steps in this toolkit, trusting your knowledge and skills, practices and processes, we hope that you can think differently and creatively about how you engage more older people and people with dementia in volunteering.
