The Lancashire Volunteer Partnership was established in 2016 between public services who wanted to provide one gateway into public service volunteering.

Our aim is to make volunteering for public services rewarding and to provide opportunities for people to make a real difference in their local communities.

By bringing these opportunities into one place and by working together we believe we can look after our volunteers better and allow them to use their skills for the benefit of all.

We are passionate about supporting people in need of help and building stronger, more resilient communities that can flourish; and at the heart of this are our volunteers.

From visiting people who may be feeling lonely or supporting those who are struggling to get out and about independently, to giving a carer some respite, volunteering alongside the neighbourhood policing teams as a Special Constable, at a children’s centre or as a cadet group leader; the LVP volunteers are truly amazing.

The Lancashire Volunteer partnership comprises of Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackpool Council Lancashire Constabulary and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

It’s not always easy to decide on what volunteering opportunity is the right one for you, particularly if it is your first time volunteering. But fear not, we are here to help.

There are many different reasons that people choose to volunteer and a whole host of benefits that volunteering brings to the individuals helped, the community and the volunteer.

It may be that you would like to gain experience in a specific area, or learn and progress in your career; volunteering is a great way of trying something new. Or perhaps you would like the chance to meet new people and give something back by making a difference to someone’s life.

Some people are keen to use the skills they have developed in their personal and professional lives, whereas for others volunteering is a chance to try something completely different.
