Supporting safer communities in the Humber Region


Lincolnshire Volunteer Cards


On Thursday 16 March 2017 High Sheriff of Lincolnshire Jill Hughes visited the Gallery at Grimsby Institiute. Here she presented Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire (VANEL) IGNITE team and Uniformed Services students from the Institute, with their Lincolnshire Volunteer Card (LVC) certificates. Uniformed Services students at Grimsby Institute started working with IGNITE as part of their course back in September. The purpose of this was to encourage the students to take an interest in, and get involved with, volunteering and social action projects. As part of this, several of the students took part in VANEL’s Lincolnshire Volunteer Card training. The LVC is a training course which allows volunteers, and people interested in becoming volunteers, to learn more about volunteering. In 2015 The Tribune Trust made a grant to VANEL of £1,220 to support their work in developing the community volunteer scheme. The grant monies were awarded to cover the costs of training the students who will go on to support the local crime and disorder reduction agenda as volunteers. All costs of training materials, promotional leaflets, certificates, frames, cards and wallets were covered. The course comprised 6 two hour practical training sessions with evaluations and feedback forms being completed.
