Upcoming Events

County Volunteer Network Meeting



The session will take a look at how and why organisations should recognise, celebrate and appreciate the commitment of their volunteers. If volunteers feel appreciated, they are more likely to stay with an organisation and so this session will focus on the importance of acknowledging the contribution volunteers make to the organisation and the clients and how best to do this.

AWAZ English Language Support Volunteer Information Session



AWAZ Cumbria is looking for volunteers to provide English language support for individuals from ethnic minority groups. It might be helping:

  • An individual who feels isolated because they don’t have the confidence to speak English
  • A child struggling to keep up with the language in the classroom
  • A parent struggling to communicate with the school and other parents

If you have some spare time and want to volunteer to help with English Language Support then book your volunteer place today to find out more about this Cumbria Community Integration Project.

Funders include Cumbria County Council, Hadfield Trust, Francis C Scott Trust, Frieda Scott Trust, Heritage Lottery Fund, the Big Lottery Fund, Charity Bank, Cumbria Community Foundation, Eden District Council, BBC Children in Need, Cumbria Exchange and Cumbria Waste Management Environment Trust.
