Dear Lancashire County Council,

In your ref 936.1206 we asked for a list of mandatory volunteer courses and the cost of those courses which you kindly provided and we thank you for. We now submit a similar request.

Please kindly produce a list of courses for your volunteers which are solely mandatory in law.

For reference - according to Buckinghamshire County Council there are no volunteer courses mandatory in law.

Further to your email of 08 September 2017, in which you request the
disclosure of information under the provisions of the above Act, we are

There are no courses that are mandatory in law, however as a council we
take safeguarding and protection of the public extremely seriously and
this extends to our volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers are integral
to the service that Lancashire County Council is able to provide to the
public, and therefore must conform to the high standards that we expect of
representatives of the council.
