Catalyst has bridged the gap between the public and the VCSE sector by developing the Stockton Volunteers programme in partnership with Stockton Borough Council.

Stockton Volunteers was designed and planned in consultation with many of the volunteer involved organisations in the Borough, ensuring that Stockton Volunteers meets the needs of local organisations and local people. The Stockton Volunteers website was launched 2016 to help bring together volunteers and organisations seeking additional support.

The Stockton Volunteers website brings together a host of volunteering opportunities that are available with organisations across the Borough. This gives potential volunteers a quick and easy way to access a range of exciting roles in one place, saving them time and keeping the process as simple as possible.

The website was created by Catalyst in partnership with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in 2005 as a way to bring together volunteering across Stockton and help promote volunteering to as many people as possible.

We’re constantly developing the site and new volunteering opportunities are posted on a regular basis. The site also features tips and advice for organisations on volunteer recruitment and management as well as help for those looking for opportunities.

Catalyst is committed to providing a positive, well-managed and encouraging volunteer experience.

To help us ensure this, our volunteer policy clearly shows the procedures we follow when recruiting, managing and supporting our volunteers.

In 2021, Catalyst co-wrote, along with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, a Volunteering Strategy for the Borough, and this strategy is being implemented progressively over time. You can view the strategy under the useful links section below.
