Becoming a Volunteer - Opportunity of a lifetime
LPCF 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
Remember LPCF has been run for 10 years by Parent Carers the same as yourself
Volunteers are unpaid individuals who help run LPCF (some expenses are payable eg Travel)
You do not necessarily require any particular skills as our volunteers go through a comprehensive induction process.
|We would really appreciate interest from individuals who do have specific skills which would benefit LPCF eg organisation , event planning, legal, financial, organisation etc|
Obvious to say but, being a Volunteer will take up some of your time
|The role of a Volunteer can be very rewarding and additional specialist training can be provided if required|
Volunteers may fulfil a number of roles which could include:-
Drop us a line as soon as possible as spaces are limited.
