Lincolnshire Volunteer Card

 

What is the Lincolnshire Volunteer Card?

 

The Lincolnshire Volunteer Card is a countywide programme, which provides basic training to become a recognised Lincolnshire Volunteer. The programme welcomes Volunteers aged 16 and over. The Volunteer Card is a sign of validation from Lincolnshire County Council, the Lincolnshire Health and Well-being Fund, and Involving Lincs (a consortium of Voluntary Sector support organisations).

 

As a certified Lincolnshire Voluntary Organisation signing up to the scheme, you will receive a certificate to display and the assurance of engaging staff who have undertaken a required basic level of generic training – at no cost to your organisation.

 

As a Volunteer Training Provider, you can receive endorsement of your current training provision against the Lincolnshire Volunteer Card standard.

 

What training is provided?

 

You will receive FREE training in 5 subject areas that are essential to Volunteering:

  • Equality and Diversity
  • Safeguarding and Confidentiality
  • Health and Safety and Personal Safety

Plus a further free specialist module to help you to develop your skills in the area of your personal interest, including:
