As a volunteer-led organisation, the work Assist Women’s Network does, cannot be achieved without the support, experience, time and commitment given by our volunteers, and we greatly appreciate all that they do. We ensure that the time you spend with us is an enjoyable experience, and we support you to learn new skills that will help you in your future work and life.
This network was built by Tees Valley volunteers and like our members and supporters, we can’t do it without them. We believe everybody should have the chance to participate and whilst we welcome specific skills and experience, what really matters to us is passion, enthusiasm and shared values. If you feel you can contribute as a volunteer, we would love to hear from you!
The opinions and ideas of Assist volunteers are always welcomed and valued within the organisation. You will enjoy a varied work experience, and we always encourage our volunteers to set and meet their personal development goals.
Assist was built on the amazing passion and commitment of volunteers working towards a our collective vision and we’re always looking to welcome others who are similarly passionate about our goals within the Tess Valley.
Not only will your time and skills make a huge difference to our progress and reach, volunteering with us is a fabulous way of developing new skills, friendships and (although we’re biased) is also great fun! We are all volunteers, our positions range from those that showcase the organisation, host events, quiet and yet essential administration roles and steering group thinkers. We can even work with you to set and achieve individual personal development goals, if this is important to you.
Inclusion is a key value of ours and we welcome the involvement of women from a complete range of backgrounds and sectors who will being diverse knowledge, opinion and ideas. If you have time, enthusiasm and a keen interest in the work of Assist Network in the Tees Valley, we’d love to hear from you email@example.com
Please tell us a little about yourself and your availability and we will be in touch. What are you waiting for?
The Assist Team
Having struggled for a while to find a womens network in Teesside, i stumbled across of the Assist events by chance. How happy i am that i did. Ann and the team make the networking fun and relevant, informative and comfortable. I've made several really good business connections, but mostly i've met some great women who i know i could turn to for advice, or even just to meet for a coffee. We all face the same issues within business and personally and the Assist meet's allow collaboration, suggestion, support and smiles. Thank you Assist x

I found Assist through a love of books and a desire for personal development but what I discovered was so much more. Whatever you come to Assist for it will benefit all aspects of your life; personal, professional and community. It is positive action for women on Teesside to support and empower each other and most importantly, to thrive. Why would you not want to be a part of this?

Since joining Assist I have been invited to events including Hidden Women of Teesside, where I had the chance to network with local business women and build contacts. I felt very welcomed and part of something supportive of where I'm at today and what I'm trying to achieve. I now have an experienced mentor for the next year to help me focus and build my dreams. Lastly I was invited to the Assist Christmas meal which was amazing as being self-employed and a small grassroots organisation, it can get lonely so I was grateful for the opportunity to connect with other women feeling the same way and trying to achieve great things.

Assist is a great place to meet, connect and collaborate with businesswomen from across the Tees Valley. It's welcoming and informal atmosphere for networking, combined with the diverse range of business topics it addresses on behalf of its members is both interesting and informative. This winning combination means i learn something new each time i attend and its why i keep coming back.
