Welcome

Voluntary Centre Services supports volunteers and voluntary and community organisations across West Lincolnshire.

As well as operating accredited Volunteer Centres in Lincoln, Gainsborough and Sleaford that deal with over 2,000 volunteer enquiries each year, we can offer help to anyone wishing to set up a group, funding advice and access to news and networks in the voluntary and community sector. We have an active team of invaluable volunteers working alongside staff to deliver services across our districts.

We also deliver a programme of volunteer management training which is available for anyone who finds themselves with responsibility for volunteers.

We hope you’ll find everything you’re looking for on our site, but please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
