Help us organise events and activities or volunteer to help out

LCON is a small charity run mostly by volunteers. We are always looking for help in organising activities; helping at events; communications and administration; and fundraising. To find out more about any of the activities below, or suggest other ways you could help, email us: info[a]lcon.org.uk . 

  • Organising activities: Let us know if you would like to get involved in any of our current activities – see the Taking Action section. We usually have small groups working on particular subjects like home energy, transport, trees or young people and education. Or got a good low carbon idea? Talk to us.
  • Running events: We run regular public meetings and open discussion forums. If you like talking to people, or would like to work behind the scenes, please get in touch.
  • Communications and admin: Join the small team tweeting and posting on LCON’s social media, or help with maintaining our website, capturing evaluation data,  and other essential admin and record-keeping. Just an hour or so a week of your time can make a real difference to us.
  • Fundraising: We welcome help in approaching grant making bodies as well as individuals in the community.

Become a trustee

Our board meetings take place once a month. You can come along to observe our meetings, or have a chat with one of us, before deciding whether to put yourself forward as a trustee. We will ask you to tell us a bit about yourself and arrange for two existing trustees to talk with you. See the information about existing trustees.
