All volunteers undergo a comprehensive training programme to enable them to work with clients safely in the community.
This training is both office based and in the community.
The first part of the training is based at the Princes Avenue Office.
- Policies & Procedures
- Volunteer role
- Boundaries & Confidentiality Issues
- Safeguarding Training
- End of Life Training
The second part of the training is accompanying an experienced volunteer/worker to work with a client for up to six weeks. This gives the volunteer the chance to observe good practice and to be able to ask questions of the mentor. The aim is to build confidence in volunteering and feedback from our volunteers suggests this method of training is very effective.
Other Training Opportunities are available these could include: First Aid Training, Dementia Awareness, Mental Capacity Act and End of Life Training.
