Here you can find out more about what it is like to be on a Progressio ICS placement:

  • What will I do? - you won't find out exactly what you will be doing beforehand as each project responds to the needs of the local communities that you will be working in and these needs change over time. You will receive some information before leaving the UK, but in the meantime to get an idea of what types of things you could be doing, see the volunteer blog.  
  • Who will I work with? On your placement you will spend ten weeks in a team of both UK and in-country volunteers, working alongside a Progressio partner organisation. A partner organisation may be a local or national charity, a community or faith based organisation or a worker's co-operative. The partner organisation will already be working in the community and volunteers will support this ongoing work.
