ROVTE

Rural Outreach Volunteer Training and Empowerment

An outreach training programme to help build community capacity and skills within rural areas.
ROVTE is taking learning out into the community where qualified tutors deliver a range of FREE City & Guilds courses to enhance qualifications, build confidence and investment in rural communities.
Individuals have achieved qualifications including:
  • Level 3 Award in Education and Training
  • Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools
  • Levels 1 and 2 in Employability 
  • Non Accredited learning in community subjects

See our Expression of Interest form link
 
As an integral part of the training and achieving a nationally recognised qualification, volunteers are required to undertake a number of hours volunteering within their own rural community.

Volunteeers are expected to support activities in their local community and commit to a minimum of 20 hours volunteer support during their training, in order to achieve their qualifications.
 
Volunteering opportunities allow individuals to share their interests and knowledge through community workshops and events on specific interest areas such as crafts, DIY, beauty therapies, gardening and IT.

"Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!
“I have come along and attended various courses at FSN but also attended the computer and Health and Wellbeing drop ins. Coming here as made me in such a better place, everyone is so supportive! I feel so much more confident, I have found myself again. I love it here!"

It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
"My little girl has really benefitted from being with other young people in similar situations. She knows she is not alone and it's ok to be sad and angry. She talks about Nanna now a lot more"
"Dragonflies has made an invaluable difference to my son, I think he was in a dark place and Dragonflies has let the light shine for him again

I have been at FSN since 2010. When I first came I knew about it because the fellowship was founded on Christian principles 80 years ago. Volunteering has changed my life. It is not only the staff who are always there to help you when you are at your lowest and feel down, but it is also a place where you can come and meet people. Volunteering for FSN has changed my life.

Our clients have reported they have found them interesting, informative and easy to engage with due to the welcoming and supportive staff and informal setting."
