Wanted bannerBecoming a Volunteer - Opportunity of a lifetime


Person Blank PlaceholderLPCF are looking for extra volunteers to help run the organisation for the benefit of parent / carers of SEND children.


Worried about the word Volunteer and not sure of what the role of a Volunteer is?


Before we start - Can anyone become a Volunteer?

We like our volunteers to be Parent Carers registered with us as they have a wealth of knowledge and experiences in dealing with Children with SEND, however this is not always essential in some volunteering roles. eg some individuals will only involve themselves with creating a Newsletter etc



Firstly lets get some key facts
