Welcome to SCAN
SCAN stands for Student Community Action Newcastle and since the 1960's we've been based in the centre of Newcastle helping students and other young people access volunteering opportunities across the North East
SCAN today is a vibrant and lively young person led charity based at Newcastle University that aims to provide a wide variety of quality volunteering opportunities, through running our own community projects and by working with other charitable/community organisations.
SCAN currently offers over 200 volunteering opportunities in the community as well as running a successful programme of young person led projects, and one-off/taster volunteering opportunities.
How do I get involved?
If you'd like to get involved in a project or find out more about volunteering we'd love to hear from you!
Here's what you need to do next:
- Read the Volunteer page for information and an explanation of the benefits of volunteering
- Have a look at the huge range of projects (click on the projects page on the navigation field) we have on offer and see if anything takes your fancy.
- If you are an International Student please visit the International Students page for specific guidance.
- Please bear in mind that many projects require a CRB check
Come into the SCAN Office to find out more about specific projects or volunteering in general. If you can't come to the office during our usual office opening hours (Mon-Thurs 10-4pm and Fri 10-1pm) then please let us know and we can make an appointment with you.
