Volunteering opportunities

Following the outbreak of Covid-19, Leicestershire Partnership Trust has made the decision to temporarily cease recruitment for new volunteers, until we are sure that it is safe to do so.

We are following government guidance closely in order to be able to welcome back volunteers, but at the moment we don’t know exactly when this will be.

Covid-19 Guidance for volunteers

In the meantime, if you would like to register your interest in any of the roles listed below, please do so.  We will be happy to keep your details and be in contact as soon as the guidance changes and we are able to resume volunteering roles.
