Volunteer Introduction

Volunteers are vital to the work of GMDT.  We have a number of volunteering opportunities some time limited, others occurring annually and some regular events.

""GMDT firmly believes that volunteers provide a valuable contribution to the achievement of our mission and we recognise their importance by actively encouraging and supporting them and ensuring that they are treated as valuable members of our team.
We also recognise that volunteers require satisfying work and personal development opportunities and we will seek to help volunteers meet these needs.
Volunteers often need flexible arrangements with regard to time and level of commitment and we will always try to work within these constraints.

A message from Karen Bower, Community Director responsible for volunteers

"I have been a Community Director with Greater Morpeth Development Trust (GMDT) since early 2013 and during that time I have been learning about the work of the Trust and trying to understand the sort of activities in which volunteers can take part.

"Much of the work of GMDT is project based and so many volunteering opportunities are short term. We have a few regular activities e.g. monthly community cinema, and a number of annual events e.g. Morpeth Gathering and Picnic in the Park.

"If you would like to know more, there are a number of documents for our Volunteers under this Volunteers section of the web site and if you are interested in offering some time to support our activities, which benefit the community in Morpeth and the surrounding area, then please complete the "keep in touch" form and email it to info@gmdt.org or return it to GMDT, Carlisle Park Lodge, Castle Square, Morpeth, NE61 1YD. Thank you"
