About Us

Welcome  to CISV North East.

CISV  is a global community of dedicated volunteers, creating opportunities for all ages to experience the excitement and enrichment of cultural diversity through our educational programmes. We were founded in 1951 on the belief that peace is possible through friendship – and that the real difference can be made by starting with children.

CISV North East England has been part of this community since the earliest days of CISV and regularly send young people to camps all over the world and have opportunities for people from 11-19, as well as volunteer leader positions for adults.

CISV is commited to the safety of all our members. See our policies and guidance on child protection and adult behaviour .

If you have any doubts or any child protection concerns, past or present, please contact us in confidence on
