Vacancies & Volunteering

North Lincolnshire Alliance Volunteer Hub Coordinator – to 31.03.22 25 hrs per week.

In March 2020, as the Coronavirus Pandemic struck Britain, North Lincolnshire Council created the opportunity for local residents to apply to become volunteers to support vulnerable people and communities. As a result of this appeal, almost 300 people applied to become volunteers. North Lincolnshire Council worked with these locally registered volunteers over this period of time and allocated them to support existing voluntary and community sector organisations, formalised Covid 19, Mutual Aid and local community groups and, as North Lincolnshire Council volunteers, undertook practical tasks for the most vulnerable residents. All of this was coordinated by North Lincolnshire Council until the North Lincolnshire Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Alliance* negotiated to take on this role under contract to North Lincolnshire Council: • Create a Volunteer Hub which will continue to recruit potential volunteers, undertake the necessary checks and support them to the point where they become ‘good to go’, ready for placement. In order to provide opportunities, the Hub will also work with existing voluntary, community and public sector organisations to register with the Hub and encourage them to ‘advertise’ volunteer opportunities in order for volunteers to be ‘matched’ and placed. • Support the Covid 19, Mutual Aid and informal community groups to identify their support needs and assist them to put in place those things which will assist them to continue, if they wish to. This includes, ensuring that they have the systems in place to support volunteers • Build upon the initial discussion with voluntary, community and public sector volunteer managers to develop a resourced Volunteer Managers Network including a training programme and document ‘repository’.

Community Champions Facilitator – to 31.03.22 - 22 hrs per week.

The aim of the Community Champions Scheme is to assist councils, communities and other partners to work together to identify and deliver a wide range of solutions to protect those most at risk. It aims to: • Improve the lives of people who are ‘Disproportionately Impacted’ by Covid, that is people who have been affected the most by Covid and perhaps will have long term problems as a result. • Find and change the things that stop people receiving accurate and quality information and services • Build trust with members of the local community, communicating accurate health information and helping to save lives together

Trustee Opportunity

We are looking for Trustees to join the HWRA Board to develop the organisation in line with the Forward Strategy 2018 to 2021. HWRA is moving forward in many ways: • Increased partnership working with the voluntary, community, public and private sectors • Developing and delivering projects and services that have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of people living in the communities we serve • Working strategically at local, regional and national level • Moving to new premises within Barton, North Lincolnshire to accommodate a growing staff team and portfolio of activities

Volunteer Car Driver

Do you have time to spare during the week to drive people using your own car to important health and social appointments? Are you looking for a volunteer role that will make a huge difference to the lives of others? If so, read on. We provide safe, reliable and affordable transport to people with genuine transport difficulties when they have no other access to, or cannot use other methods of transport.

We believe that the role of volunteers is vital in our rural communities and in supporting the work of HWRCC.

There are a number of ways in which volunteers can get involved:

  • Volunteer car driving
  • Office support - helping with administration and reception tasks
  • Getting involved in a community group in your rural area
  • Sharing your experience of taking forward a community project
  • And many more opportunities....

Training is available where applicable.

If you are interested in volunteering in one or more of these areas, or you believe there are other ways in which you could get involved, please contact us. We'd love to hear from you!
