Volunteer Programme


Written by Paul

4th October 2011


Enter CIC is passionate about providing volunteering opportunities for people of any age. We understand that people volunteer their time for a number of different reasons including the need to develop different skills for the work place, social interaction, develop confidence, improve health, or simply the need to introduce a new challenge/experience into their lives.

We know that people who volunteer their time often have local knowledge and an understanding of their community needs. We recognise that volunteers are the backbone of good institutes and have found without exception that a volunteering work force is a powerful one.

What skills do I need to volunteer with Enter CIC?

You do not need formal qualifications, or a particular set of skills. All you need is a little bit of time and a willingness to get involved.

Will I receive any training?

We aim to provide volunteers with a comprehensive introduction to the company. We always familiarise people with our policies and teaching methodologies. Where appropriate we provide job specifications and advise on how your time can be put to good use. You will find yourself working alongside our coaches, teaching team and like-minded people.

Will I have the opportunity to gain qualifications, or skills with Enter CIC?

We will provide opportunities for you to acquire qualifications or undergo opportunities for upskilling. However, this is optional and not a prerequisite for involvement with Enter CIC.

Recently we secured a small pot of funding to up skill our current volunteers. As a result our current volunteers had the opportunity to participate in the following courses:

  • NSPCC Child Protection Level 1
  • Paediatric First Aid Course
  • Sports Leaders: Dance Coach Level 1

All volunteers will undergo an Enhanced CRB Disclosure and acquire a Matron/Chaperone licence from Durham County Council.

Are there any age restrictions for volunteering with Enter?

We know that people of all ages are looking for volunteering opportunities. Therefore, we are happy to provide placements for people of all ages. Sharing new experiences with people, learning news skills, developing confidence and facing new challenges affects everyone irrespective of age. So whether you are a young person wishing to develop skills for your first job, or a retired person looking to share your skills, there is always a place for you at Enter CIC.

How much time will I have to dedicate to Enter?

You get to choose how many hours you work and what sort of work you do. You can do as little, or as much as you like. We will tailor make your volunteering programme depending on your availability and interests.

Give us a call

Giving up your time can be incredibly rewarding, especially when it’s helping someone out. We know that for many people picking up the phone and calling a new group, or attending a session for the first time can be a nerve wracking experience, but please don’t worry. Here at Enter you will be welcomed with open arms and find that you very quickly fit into the Enter CIC family. If you have the time and would be interested in joining us, please call us on 01740 655437 for a non-obligation chat. Click here to see our current team.
