We have adapted our volunteer training course to an online course, and it officially starts next Thursday 7th May 2020 at 2pm. It will be delivered over the course of ten weeks via Zoom and through pre-recorded tutorials and online discussions. We have adapted the course to this new totally online format in response to current events. As a new organisation, we are keen to get our new volunteers trained and working with families as soon as we can, and with no end date in sight for current social distancing measures, we decided that we could still run the course, we have just had to get creative in how we deliver it!
Trainee Volunteers will be able to watch the pre-recorded tutorials throughout the week at a time that works best for them, and then will have the chance during weekly Zoom meetings to meet their colleagues, discuss what they have learnt through the week, ask questions and get feedback.
We still have spaces available and it is not too late to get a space on this course. We are looking for people with parenting experience to work with families who may need some extra support at a tricky time. We ask that volunteers can commit a couple of hours a week helping families, and in return volunteers will gain invaluable experience. If you feel this is something you might be interested in, we would love to hear from you.
At this time of uncertainty, increasing numbers of families are needing our support and friendship and we want to ensure we have enough volunteers so that all families who need it, can get the help they need to remain strong, happy and healthy.
