Free charity and community training offer

by | 12 September 2020 | Gainsborough, Local Charity

Volunteer Centres Lincolnshire, a partnership between the county’s infrastructure organisations Voluntary Centre Services and Lincolnshire CVS, continues to offer a free online training programme for community and voluntary groups based in Lincolnshire.
The programme, which has been operating since 2017, has been extended to offer a range of course covering the most asked-for courses within the community, such as first aid, food hygiene, health and safety and data protection.
The 60 course programme is open to any community group operating in Lincolnshire, and each group is able to access up to 25 licences for their staff or volunteers. Learners have eight weeks to complete as many of the courses as they would like to.
Anyone interested in accessing the training can complete an expression of interest form at or by emailing Organisations can also visit the Lincolnshire Volunteering website for access to free templates and resources as well as information about how to find local support from the community-based teams. Throughout August and September Voluntary Centre Services will be offering free online risk assessment clinics for community groups, to help bust some of the myths about getting your volunteers back into community activity safely and effectively.
Any organisations in the Gainsborough and West Lindsey area can get in touch with Voluntary Centre Services directly on or 01427 613470 for information and support with operating and managing community organisations and involving volunteers.
