How you can help us

Individuals can give donations of their time or money to ACTS.

ACTS is a local, independent, registered charity and donations received are used locally to support local people. If you wish to benefit older people in your local area, then making a donation to ACTS ensures that your money is used locally to make life for older people more enjoyable, vibrant and fulfilling.

No matter the size, donations are always welcome and there are a number of ways to donate to us.



Volunteers are a vital part of the work we carry out at ACTS.

Whether you are looking to learn new skills, gain work experience or to use the skills and experience you have to put something back into the community or stay active after retirement - find out more about our volunteering opportunities.


Make A Donation

ACTS is a local independent charity, which is dependent on the support of local people to enable us to provide our much needed services to support older people.  Every donation we receive, no matter how small or large will benefit older people living in South Tyneside facing challenges in life. By donating regularly or by making a single donation you can help us to continue to support over 10,000 older people across the Borough each year.


There are a variety of different ways that you can help us to fundraise. You can fundraise as an individual by taking part in a personal challenge or organise events.

Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy to ACTS is one of the most effective ways that you can support local people in later life.
