    Volunteering within the Recovery College

    Volunteering within the Recovery College can be a very rewarding activity that will be tailored to your individual lived experience and skills.

    The Recovery College is driving the co-production and co-design of recovery learning opportunities in Lancashire and we believe our Volunteers will help us to get it right. We are looking to work alongside people who will bring enthusiasm, skills and experiences, flexibility, fresh ideas and new ways of working.

    Previous experience is not a necessary, but Recovery Volunteers need to demonstrate empathy, hope and control so we can keep enhancing the opportunities available to our communities. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from people with lived experience of mental health services and carers of people who experience mental ill-health.

    Volunteering is a chance to meet new like-minded people and gain experience if you are interested in a career in Peer Support, NHS Clinical roles or in facilitating recovery and community learning opportunities.

    A regular time commitment is required, because consistency is important to our members. Courses may be delivered during the daytime, evenings and weekends so full time workers and students are often still able to volunteer with us.

    All volunteers are DBS checked and will be supported by the recovery team; you will receive continuous supervision and support.
