Volunteering is choosing to do something for the benefit of others, or for your community or the environment, without being paid to do it. Volunteering is open to anyone, and can bring great personal rewards. We believe that everyone has a valuable contribution to make to society.

Volunteer Management Training

Voluntary Centre Services (VCS) in partnership with Lincolnshire Community & Voluntary Service (LCVS) and the Lincolnshire Volunteer Centres, have developed a series of Volunteer Management workshops to help voluntary sector groups and charities improve their skills and knowledge in recruiting, supporting and valuing their volunteers.

The programme is free for voluntary sector groups and charities working in Lincolnshire who are looking to recruit volunteers

It consists of 3 workshops which will be delivered over 5 half day sessions virtually on Zoom and will cover the volunteer journey from preparing your group for volunteers, to recruiting and supporting your volunteers to saying goodbye.

Groups can attend any of the five sessions depending on what stage they are in the volunteer management process.

Free Online Volunteer Training

We have a series of free online training for volunteers and staff working within the charitable sector. Please go to https://lincolnshirevolunteering.org.uk/online-training/ for more information.

Youth Volunteering

We would love to hear from young people aged 16-25 who would like to become volunteers! Through the highly successful vinvolved national youth volunteering scheme, there has been a strong focus on youth volunteering across the county in recent years. The legacy of this work is a bespoke website, where you can find volunteering opportunities just for you! Simply visit http://www.vinspired.com or get in touch with your local office.

We would also like to hear from organisations that would be able to offer young people a volunteering opportunity.

Group volunteering

Volunteering with others can be great fun, as you set goals and achieve things together for the benefit of an organisation or a charity of your choice. It can also be a good way to build a team, or just get friends together. Simply contact us and let us know what you would like to do.

Many employers are now using volunteering activities as an opportunity to get teams out and about and doing something different to

Our service for volunteer-involving organisations

What we do and don’t do
We promote your opportunities to potential volunteers face to face, at events and online through the Do-it website.  It is a free advertising service that enables you to reach a wide range of potential volunteers in a simple way. If someone is interested in your opportunities we will notify you of their contact details and ask you to get in touch with them to take things further.

We do not “vet” potential volunteers on your behalf, so you will need to carry out whatever recruitment and selection processes are appropriate for your work. However we can work with you to help you develop a recruitment process to suit your organisation and the work that volunteers do.

Disclosure & Barring Service
Volunteering opportunities involving work with children, young people or vulnerable adults may require the volunteer to undertake a criminal records  check as one of the elements of the selection process. It is the responsibility of the volunteer-involving organisation to undertake these checks in line with appropriate legislation.

Urban Challenge is registered as an Umbrella Body with the DBS, so we can provide more information and access to Disclosure & Barring service checks should you need it – visit the DBS pages on this site to find out more.
