Welcome to You First
Supporting the voluntary sector in South Tyneside.
You First is the ‘umbrella’ organisation for the local voluntary and community sector, sometimes called an ‘infrastructure body’.
We have developed this website to promote what we do and to ensure that our services are accessible to as many groups as possible. Here you will find details of all our services and the types of support we provide for voluntary organisations and community groups in South Tyneside. There is also information about our projects which we hope you will find of interest.
The website itself connects with our new Facebook page South Tyneside CVS, so we can bring you the latest news and events, sources of funding and much more. We’d like this website to be as interactive as possible so please let us know what you would like to have added to the site. You can also contact us with questions and queries.
We look forward to hearing from you. Happy browsing!
