Central to CLI’s success is our ability to recruit and develop motivated and passionate staff and volunteers. We support staff and volunteers to use their CLI experience positively and improve their own self-confidence and opportunities; applying a ‘recruit from within’ policy and supporting team members to access further education and qualification opportunities.
Volunteers are a crucial part of the CLI team – they are our driving force for helping people to turn their lives around.
We operate across England and currently have mentor volunteering opportunities in Greater Manchester and Bedfordshire.
Our volunteer mentors offer a minimum of 2-4 hours a week to support people to set and achieve personal goals.
We recruit and train volunteers from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds and we actively welcome volunteers with lived experience of all the issues we provide support for.
We face a diverse range of issues in our community and seek diverse individuals to work with us to address them.
In addition to a positive attitude and non-judgemental approach, we recruit outgoing volunteers who are resilient and are prepared to invest time, commitment and energy to help clients to create lasting change in their lives.

CLI treat all their volunteers in the exact same way as any other staff member, and I’ve always felt respected as part of the team. Mentoring and the support I’ve received from everyone at CLI has helped my self-confidence grow massively as the good work I have done has always been highlighted, helping me to see my own value and abilities.
