How do we do this?

At the heart of voluntary and community action for 90 years, we are immersed and rooted in the North East.
We work collectively and inclusively to connect, grow and strengthen our society. We are warm and approachable, and we create opportunities to exchange ideas, learn from and empower one another.

We understand from our own experiences the challenges people face. We truly value people and we won't judge or dictate.
Leading independently and side by side with our communities and partners, we share our resources, skills and expertise to enable people to take meaningful action.

Courageous, resourceful and determined, we will challenge unfairness and ask difficult questions.
Working effectively and accountably to instil confidence. We aim to become stronger and more sustainable to inspire positive and lasting change throughout our community

We believe that diversity should be celebrated and valued, and everyone deserves equality.
Working towards a fairer future for all, we won't stand still. By making an impact on causes big and small, we want to improve the quality of life across the region.

From individuals to organisations, we believe everyone has a right to be heard.
Trusted to listen, understand and advocate, we strive for excellence. We’re open and honest, we stick by people and give our support to ensure their voices are heard.

    We're pleased to share the findings from our recent peer research project on mental health in ethnically minoritised communities. Our peer research project was commissioned by Newcastle Healthy Futures. Connected Voice Haref coordinated the project while Fulfilling Lives Newcastle Gateshead provided peer research training. Four organisations (Rainbow Home. First Step, Riverside Community Health Project, West End Friends) provided members of staff and peer researchers to design and implement the research. This project was started after almost a year of living with the pandemic. Although the overall research does not focus specifically on the pandemic’s effects on mental health, COVID-19 has had a significant impact, and its presence is notable in some questions and in the results.
