Between 2008-2011 we were the lead partner delivering Lincolnshire’s successful vinvolved youth volunteering programme.
vinvolved was part of the £75 million Cabinet Office funded youth volunteering initiative which made it easier for young people to volunteer by creating a national network of youth experts, innovative projects and volunteering champions.
Working in partnership with Lincolnshire Council for Voluntary Youth Services (LCVYS) and Lincolnshire County Council’s youth services, our county vinvolved team championed youth volunteering across the county and encouraged more community organisations to open their doors to young volunteers. We enabled young people aged 16-25 to find the volunteering opportunities they wanted, and supported them to work alongside their peers in Youth Action Teams to deliver community projects of their own choosing.
Over the lifetime of the project we supported 3,204 young people into volunteering opportunities with 396 different organisations.
