Learning Plus was set up in 2002 by local people and although our tutors are now paid, volunteers play an absolutely key role in our organisation:
Volunteering with Learning Plus
We would currently value volunteers in the following roles:
- Supporting our digital skills class – Tuesdays 1-3pm term time
Could you show someone how to send a photo on whatsapp? or back up their contacts?
- Supporting our digital skills outreach to older people – Wednesdays once a month, 2-3pm
Could you help someone use a touchscreen to play a game or do a fun task for the first time?
- Organising trips out and activities
Could you book transport or help get the event publicised?
- Putting up posters in Ambleside and surrounding area
Could you put up posters on noticeboards in your area once a term?
- Leaflet distribution
Could you deliver leaflets on your street/in your local area once a year?
Could you co-ordinate a team of people who are willing to deliver leaflets?
- Becoming a trustee – 3-4 meetings a year
We are currently looking to improve knowledge of HR and contacts with local businesses on our board.

Could you help us organise a community quiz? A multi-cultural cookbook? Could you man a stall at the Christmas lights?
