Can you use your experience to help others?
We are looking for people just like you across Lancashire, including Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool, to volunteer with ICANN. Our volunteers make a huge difference helping people who find it difficult to speak up for themselves.
We could not achieve our mission without our wonderful volunteers and the vital work that they do. Volunteering is not just about helping others. It can also help build on your existing skills, develop new skills, increase your confidence and self-esteem by supporting people in your local community.
Providing advocacy support is an extremely rewarding volunteer role and joining ICANN is a great way to meet people and be part of a friendly team. Our volunteers make a huge difference helping people who find it difficult to speak up for themselves.
We offer regular opportunities for our community of volunteers to meet, share experiences, exchange ideas and benefit from continuous personal and professional development as well as some great social events!
Support for Volunteers
We offer a range of different volunteering roles to fit in with your lifestyle. We provide free training, ongoing support, and supervision.
ICANN provide regular volunteer training. This is held at venues across Lancashire including Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen. The training covers advocacy awareness, basic advocacy skills, equality, and diversity, safeguarding, ICANN policies and procedures and the ethical dilemmas you may come across as an advocate. Project specific training is also provided depending on the volunteer role.
As a volunteer advocate, I felt really well supported by the ICANN staff. I am a retired primary school teacher and was amazed how transferable certain skills are, it feels good to be able to support people at a time of need – Volunteer
The way we are fundraising has changed since the Coronavirus outbreak – there are lots of different ways we can fundraise together!
Over the past two years we have worked with our supporters to find alternative ways to fundraise, and you may have your own ideas for an event or sponsorship challenge.
Come and join in the fun at a local event or take on a challenge with ICANN to raise money – you can do this!
We are committed to having partnerships with businesses and other organisations that share our goal to make a deep and lasting impact and that work towards our vision of a community where all individuals are empowered to live, thrive, and foster a greater sense of control.
A partnership with us could be beneficial for your organisation, helping you meet your business or social responsibility objectives or a great way to motivate current or future employees.
