Hi.  My name is Janette Holden.  I run the Volunteer Centre at CVS and my role is to support local Community Organisations and Charities with policies and procedures, recruiting volunteers, DBS information etc. I support individuals to find volunteering opportunities to suit their needs and match them up with the relevant volunteer opportunities. I am also responsible for the coordination of our Training Programme and processing DBS applications.

I started at CVS in Oct 2000 as part time Coordinator for our voluntary car scheme now known as Communicars. In addition to this, in April 2002, I started working part time running the Volunteer Centre. This led to a full time role in 2008 when we received funding from the Big Lottery and I have been here ever since. I really enjoy my work and the satisfaction it gives me to help others.

When I am not working I enjoy walking with my partner and Border Collie. I love reading and going on foreign holidays.  I am also a member of Pendle Leisure Trust where I attend various exercise classes every week.
