We've recently changed our name from Newcastle CVS to Connected Voice and we will be launching a new website soon

At the heart of voluntary and community action in the North East of England, we want to improve the quality of life across the region and work towards a fairer future for all

How do we do this?


We amplify voices.

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 champion equality.

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.

We inspire change.

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 support action.

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.

We connect people.

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.
