Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is a fantastic way to develop new skills, enhance your CV, contribute to your local community and meet new people.

Lincolnshire CVS supports individuals to find opportunities in their local area and community groups and charities to find the volunteers they need.

 

How do I start volunteering?

Getting started couldn’t be easier. Contact your local LCVS Volunteer Centre to arrange an informal meeting to discuss what your interests are and to find out what volunteering opportunities are available in your local area.

We ensure that every potential volunteer gets a warm personal welcome and has the opportunity to discuss and explore what areas of volunteering they are interested in, what skills they want to gain/use and what time they have available to volunteer.

You can begin your search for your perfect volunteering role straightaway by searching via national database Do It (see below).

You may also find featured volunteering opportunities in our news pages, where we highlight volunteer stories, volunteering opportunities, updates on other LCVS services, events and training. Click here: LCVS news

 

 

What could I do as a volunteer? 

Whatever your interest there’s a volunteering role for you.

LCVS is in regular contact with community groups and charities who are looking for people to support them in hundreds of ways, with roles in administration, gardening, supporting the police, children’s activities, befriending, heritage, fundraising, youth work and much, much more.

Need extra support?

At LCVS we understand taking the first steps into anything new can be daunting, volunteering included.

That is why we do everything we can to support you through the process.

“I doubt I would have got the job without the volunteering experience and the reference Boston Community Transport gave me.

“I was reluctant to volunteer at the start but it has helped me I am sure and I would definitely recommend volunteering to others.”

“Volunteering allowed me to be creative again. I feel that I now have something to do and I have a passion for something again.

“My long term goal is to find paid employment and until I am ready for that, this allows me to contribute something and do something productive with my time.”

“I get more out of this than I do anything else. When I see pictures popping up on social media of a child who has achieved their white belt or someone who has got a certificate, I feel proud too.
“What we do allows people to achieve things they wouldn’t otherwise achieve.”

“Anybody I speak to I recommend getting into volunteering – it’s such a pick me up and you’re doing something really worthwhile. It’s one of the best moves I’ve ever made.”
