Lawcare Calls For Volunteers
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations runs Volunteers’ Week from 1-7 June each year, throughout England & Wales, Northern Ireland [Volunteer Now NI] and Scotland [in partnership with Volunteer Development Scotland].
Over 22m people volunteer, and volunteering contributes over £22.6bn to the UK economy.
The campaign recognises their contribution, and this year the campaign tells volunteers ‘you make the difference’. “Volunteers’ Week is timely for us this year,” says Elizabeth Rimmer, CEO of LawCare.
“It provides a great opportunity for us to thank our current volunteers, who do such a great job of supporting legal professionals with personal or professional issues via our Helpline.
“We are also looking for volunteers who are available to cover occasional shifts on the LawCare Helpline on weekdays. Retired legal professionals, or those working part time, would be ideal to help us out from Monday to Friday.
“If anyone would be interested in volunteering for this challenging, and rewarding, role, please contact us. Full training and support will be given.”
