Our Volunteer training has moved online

We were forced to suspend our volunteer training course in March because of Covid. Our latest cohort of volunteers had finished seven out of the ten training sessions before lockdown was imposed.

With no definitive date as to when face to face group training can start again, we made the decision to finish the volunteer training online. This has not been done before, so it has been steep learning curve for the team but we are delighted that we could offer it to our latest cohort of volunteers so that they could complete their training.

We are incredibly grateful to the volunteers who have remained exceptionally dedicated throughout the last few months and have really enjoyed guiding them through the last few sessions of the course.

The sessions were split into three Zoom calls, focusing on communication skills, values & attitudes and signposting, with homework in between.

Congratulations to our new graduate volunteers, we are looking forward to matching them with families in the coming weeks.
