The Lancashire Volunteer Partnership (LVP) is a gateway into public service volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your local community, enhance your CV and meet new people. Our volunteers tell us their experience is incredibly rewarding.

​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 to the volunteers themselves.

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

What our clients say...

Through the 1:1 mentoring support and encouragement I received, I now realise that I am not 'useless' and can achieve my goals. - Zaynab

Unfortunately I lost my job after 13 years of working at the same company so I asked for support to create a new CV and set-up and Indeed account as I didn't know anything about these things. - Carol
