Volunteering for LPCF

Person Icon

An opportunity not to be missed !!!

LPCF are looking for extra volunteers to help run the organisation for the benefit of parent / carers of children with SEND.

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

Can anyone become a Volunteer?

Our volunteers are all Parent Carers who are registered with us as they have a wealth of knowledge and experiences in dealing with Children with SEND.

However it is not always essential as some volunteering roles are about other skills e.g. some individuals will only involve themselves with creating a newsletter etc.
We do have two specialist volunteer Trustees permitted by our rules where individuals have skills important to the Charity - currently a solicitor and a grant finder.

Who should not Volunteer?

Most people are eligible to volunteer although there a few legal barriers especially if someone wished to become a Volunteer Trustee.
Also we do not have volunteers who are seeking to make gain or represent the views of other organisations, businesses, only themselves.

Essential information - before we start

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 e.g. 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
e.g. 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.
