We want to ensure that our volunteers feel fully prepared for the role ahead of them which is why we never send anyone out until they have completed our volunteer preparation course.
During this 8 week, accredited course you will develop the knowledge and skills you will need to effectively provide one to one support for children and families.
Once you are trained and matched with a family, you will receive regular supervision with a member of our team and ongoing training opportunities to enable you to develop your skills further.
The training sessions will prepare you for the home visiting role, covering topics such as child development, safeguarding vulnerable children, difficulties and issues experienced by families, boundaries and values, supervision and support, and will provide you with practical skills for working alongside parents and their children.
Please give us a call or complete the volunteer enquiry form to find out more about the role.
