Leading LCV tasks
The job of a task leader gets much easier with
practice, but it can be a bit daunting the first few times.
LCV has agreed a set of Responsibilities of a
leader. In order of decreasing priority these are:
Look after yourself.
Ensure the volunteers have a safe day: care for them from
when we pick them up to when we drop them off.
Protect the public during and after the task
Give the client what they want: make sure that
they are getting what they paid for
Look after new volunteers: be welcoming and
considerate and involve them in the group.
Ensure the volunteers have an enjoyable day:
worked hard (but not too hard!), fed and watered
appropriately and kept informed and engaged
Ensure that our involvement in the task is worthwhile: that
it fits with our objectives and "has a point"
Communicate with and educate volunteers and the public
Before you lead a task, it's important to be familiar with LCV's procedures for task
If you have any queries or would like any further information then
ask the Co-ordinator.
