The SDS Team are delighted to announce that we are recruiting volunteer Champions!

What does the role of LCiL Champion entail?  

LCiL Champions are volunteers who share their lived experience at conferences, events or training programmes, or become members of working groups of committees. We are recruiting new people to join the Champions programme. Champions are disabled people, people living with long-term conditions and parent carers who are involved with LCiL.

We will provide new Champions with training and support – our team of Champions also meets together regularly as a peer support group.

Do you have experience in:

  • Assessments and support planning?
  • Directing your support package, or your child’s support?
  • Being a PA employer?

If the answer is yes, this volunteer role might be for you!
