VOLUNTEERING FOR THE OVER 50s.
RSVP, Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme is part of Community Service Volunteers and exists to encourage the growing number of those aged 50 plus to participate in voluntary work in their local area. RSVP have volunteers in England, Scotland and Wales. We tap into the wide range of skills and experience of mature people and they undertake voluntary work mainly in their local community. RSVP is volunteer led and inspired, with only some nine permanent paid staff.
Volunteer organisers are responsible for local groups varying in size from 5 to 50 or more. Around 30 volunteer Regional Co-ordinators are responsible for both area and project organisers and volunteers.
There are now a substantial number of RSVP volunteers helping in the North East in a wide range of activites including schools, telephone befriending schemes and GP transport schemes.
RSVP North East covers the North East region from Berwick in the North to Redcar in the South.
