What is the Lincolnshire Volunteer Card?
The Lincolnshire Volunteer Card is a countywide programme, which provides basic training to become a recognised Lincolnshire Volunteer. The programme welcomes Volunteers aged 16 and over. The Volunteer Card is a sign of validation from Lincolnshire County Council, the Lincolnshire Health and Well-being Fund, and Involving Lincs (a consortium of Voluntary Sector support organisations).
As a certified Lincolnshire Voluntary Organisation signing up to the scheme, you will receive a certificate to display and the assurance of engaging staff who have undertaken a required basic level of generic training – at no cost to your organisation.
