Lincolnshire Volunteer Card

Subsidised places are available on the Lincolnshire Volunteer Card (LVC) training course at the VANEL office.

LVC training is aimed at people who are preparing to volunteer so they have a good understanding of what volunteering is, what to expect when they embark on a volunteer placement, and their rights and responsibilities as a volunteer.LVC training is available to people of all ages who live in North East Lincolnshire, and is free to unplaced volunteers. We are keen to promote this training opportunity to young people aged between 16 and 25, and who are interested in volunteering. The training would be particularly useful to any young person interested in getting involved with VANEL’s IGNITE or Young Leaders Programmes.

The training is comprised of six 2 hour sessions, each covering a different module. All six modules must be completed for you to receive your volunteer card, however these do not have to be taken in chronological order. The modules that are covered as part of LVC training are Good Practice, Health and Safety, Equality and Diversity, Safeguarding, Customer Care and Living Well. This is a fun, interactive course that gives you all the basics ready to start your volunteering journey. Hundreds of volunteers across Lincolnshire have already achieved their Lincolnshire Volunteer Card.

What do you get when you’ve completed the course?

  • A ‘credit card’ style ‘Lincolnshire Volunteer Card
  • A certificate that outlines the modules you have achieved
  • A volunteering CV which you can continue to develop.
