Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) supports volunteers & finds suitable opportunities for them to use & grow their skills. We also help community groups recruit suitable volunteers in a variety of roles to enable them to carry on the good work they do in the community.

Volunteering is open to anyone and can bring great personal rewards. We also believe that everyone has a valuable contribution to make to society. Getting started could not be easier. There are lots of new & exciting opportunities being added to our database every day. You could be a befriender, treasurer, coach, first responder, wildlife volunteer. The possibilities are endless…

Our Area Officers are here to help & can support you to identify suitable roles within your local community & get started with volunteering activities that you will find enjoyable. We offer volunteering opportunities for individuals, employers & organisations.

For Individuals

Whatever your interest, here at LCVS can find a volunteering role tailored to 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.

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.

 

 

For Employers

Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) is a great way to help your employees grow.

ESV is about employers encouraging their employees to make a difference in the local community by volunteering. Employees will learn new skills, & strengthen their confidence. ESV can also benefit your business or organisation by helping to raise your profile and to connect with the local community.

But what does ESV involve? Volunteering can involve a whole range of activities suited to the skills & interests of your employees. It might involve working with & supporting groups on practical projects like building a footpath, planting trees or decorating a building. 

 

 

For Organisations

LCVS can support your community group or voluntary organisation to recruit volunteers.

Our volunteer brokerage service will support you to find suitable volunteers for your specific voluntary roles. Our trained officers will work closely with you to ensure the role is advertised & you receive interest from potential volunteers. We provide advice & information to ensure volunteers are successfully integrated into your organisation.

Once you’ve completed the required forms & we’ve registered your organisation’s details on our nationally-recognised database, it’s over to us. We’ll promote your opportunity to enable potential volunteers to register their interest in your role. We’ll ask them to contact you or we will contact you on their behalf.

What people say about volunteering…

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.

Shaun Allsop

Volunteer, Chain Bridge Forge – A Living Museum, Spalding,

I thoroughly enjoy working with a wonderful team of committee members and volunteers who are fully committed to putting on the best event that we possibly can.

“Through the event I have met and become friends with some fantastic people. I have grown in confidence as a person and the event has educated me in community awareness and I fully appreciate the amount of dedication and hard work it takes to put on this successful event.

Tracy Hollis

Committee Secretary, Deepings Raft Race

“Having this voluntary work on my CV stood me in good stead. Experience counts for more than anything.
“I began volunteering because I needed to get my motivation back and stay connected to the outside world.
“I wish I could spend the rest of my life doing voluntary work. It gives you so much satisfaction and you’re so appreciated. It’s something to cherish. 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.”

Richard Mister

Volunteer

“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.”

Gemma Holland

Volunteer administrator, Storm UK Martial Arts
