Colour Your Life

Ever wondered about volunteering but don’t know how? Sign up to the Colour Your Life Project and find out how volunteering can change your life!

As part of the ‘Colour Your Life’ project in County Durham, funded by Durham County Council Public Health, Groundwork NE & Cumbria are providing support for people to find a volunteering role doing something that interests and inspires them and gives them a chance to make a difference to their community.

As well as helping people find the right volunteering opportunity for them, the Colour Your Life Project provides access to creative and informal learning opportunities for the improvement of mental health and the development of emotional resilience. The service is open to referrals from GP’s, mental health services, health and care professions, third sector and community organisations, statutory agencies and self-referrals.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about the project and possibly getting involved in volunteering should contact Lynne Miller, Project Officer for Groundwork NE & Cumbria on 01207 524803 or email
