Village Liaison Officer 2004

Village Liaison Officer 2004 is a new exciting programme supported by Stratford-upon-Avon Council for Voluntary Service and funded by South Warwickshire PIE Programme, Warwick District Council, Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwickshire County Council, using volunteers living in rural villages to signpost people enabling them to access services and information provided by organisations such as the Local Authorities and the Voluntary Sector.

We are looking for people from rural villages in the Stratford and Warwick Districts to become Voluntary Liaison Officers, supported and guided by the Rural Outreach Project Co-ordinator, Ruth Spaak.

Village Liaison Officers will be invited to network meetings every other month at venues around the district to enable them to signal the requirements of their particular villages so that Ruth Spaak can access appropriate responses to the needs of communities and pass on the information.

Regular information bulletins will be sent out to VLOs, and guest speakers will be invited to give talks on their service areas at the network meetings.

Village Liaison Officers are given packs of information about a number of services which they pass on to anyone who requests information, they are not expected to give specialist advice or to become involved in individual cases.

Ruth will be at the centre of the network of Village Liaison Officers providing a link between services, information and local people and the communities they live in.

We are hoping that a range of people will apply to become VLOs; from different age groups, different ethnic origins, and with different life experiences to provide a rich, varied and accessible cross section of volunteers to make this vital project successful.

Expenses for travel to meetings and telephone calls will be reimbursed by the Council for Voluntary Service.
