Volunteering with Cloverleaf Advocacy

                         

Cloverleaf Advocacy is always interested in new ways to work with volunteers so please let us know if you have an idea!

 

          

 

We welcome volunteers with a wide range of interests, skills and experience and we are open to new ideas.

We often have new opportunities to volunteer with us across Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and Tameside. We have roles from admin support to volunteer advocates

The roles differ in each area so please get in touch for more information.

An example role description for Group Support Volunteer is here

 

 

Volunteers are offered an Introduction to Advocacy Skills training course with us once they begin their role.

Cloverleaf takes part in Volunteers' Week each year and also attends and hosts events to celebrate the valuable input made by our volunteers.

Follow our news updates for events you can become involved in.

More about volunteering

What are the benefits of volunteering with Cloverleaf?

When you join Cloverleaf as a volunteer you will receive a comprehensive induction and training.

You will be matched with a supervisor who will talk through the types of things that you might be doing. This will help to form your volunteer agreement.

What is a Volunteer Agreement?

Your supervisor will work with you to decide your “Volunteer Agreement”. This agreement  will outline your agreed role, Cloverleaf Advocacy policies, and the support you can expect.

The agreement is not a legal document and is not a contract of employment.

Will my expenses be paid?

You should not be out of pocket by volunteering, and after agreement with your supervisor, Cloverleaf will refund reasonable travel expenses, including public transport and travel by car or taxi.

Any other volunteer-related expenses will need to be discussed and approved by your supervisor.

Will I need a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check?

Not all our volunteering roles need a DBS check, which is the new name for a CRB check.

If you will be working alone with a vulnerable adult or child, then the law states that one must be carried out, however you have to give consent for this to happen.

Administrative roles do not need a DBS check.
