The North East is home to countless charities and voluntary organisations whose teams work tirelessly in support of families across the region.

The invaluable work of the voluntary sector has been hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

We wanted to raise the profile of the organisations helping families across Hartlepool, the wider North East and beyond.

We asked the Hartlepool Mail readers to shout out a charity or other organisation doing great work, with hundreds of people getting in touch to share a cause close to their hearts.
