What is a Volunteer?
A volunteer is an individual who offers unpaid help to benefit of others like organisations and individuals (who are not ‘originally’ family or friends), which are not for gain or profit.
Volunteers at LCIL are involved team members, who provide real benefit to the organisation. LCIL encourages disabled people to volunteer as it is a user led organisation, with board and staff members being disabled people also
If you are interested in dedicating a small amount of time regularly on a Friday in support of the Social Media Café then please contact John Coster our Volunteer Coordinator. He will be able to tell you about:
- What opportunities LCIL has at the moment
- You can have a chat about these opportunities to find out if they are the right ones for you!
The Volunteer Coordinator will also inform you on:
- What training will be given
- And any other questions you may have about becoming a volunteer.
LCIL values the involvement of volunteers and we can offer volunteers:
- Work experience
- To be briefed, inducted and supported in their volunteer roles
- To be given the proper tools and equipment to perform their roles
- An open and friendly environment to carry out roles
- Training and development opportunities
- Making new friends
- Flexible hours and condition to suit each volunteer
- Lunch by The Real Junk Food Project will be provided
- To be treated equally and not to be given the worst jobs
The first opportunity is for a small team of volunteers to support LCiL every Friday (11.30am for 30 minutes) in the Social Media Café and host its weekly themed sessions:
Week 1 Employability, Volunteering and Training
Week 2 Health and Wellbeing
Week 3 Products and Services
Week 4 Get Yourself Active
If this is something you are interested in doing please contact John Coster, LCIL Volunteer Coordinator on 0116 2225005 or firstname.lastname@example.org
