Make a difference and volunteer with PCP.

Without our volunteers, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve half of the fantastic things PCP has worked for over the last 20 years.


Over the last year our volunteers have put in 9,000 hours of unpaid work into our services, which equates to nearly £81,297!


By volunteering with PCP, you can build your skill set and work experience which you can add to your CV whilst giving time doing what you enjoy.

We're actively looking for volunteers to join our telephone befriending service that launched in 2020. Make a positive difference to those living in County Durham, sometimes a conversation with a caring stranger can make the world of difference.

What Volunteer Roles are at PCP?


Our amazing volunteers look after the PCP community garden and allotments. The centre runs multiple sessions during the week for volunteers to give their time, meet up in the fresh air and complete garden duties. However, the garden is always open for those who'd like to grow, dig or even to just walk around.

The Options members and Together 21 families love spending time in the garden and giving a helping hand to our volunteers.
