Before starting the training programme, you will need to attend some introductory workshops. The person who meets with you will let you know when the next introductory workshops are coming up. We run these workshops a few months before a training course for new volunteers is due to start and we hold them in different areas where we have heard there are parents who are interested in becoming peer supporters.
We usually only run one training course each year, so if it is likely to be a while before you can start your training, in the meantime we will give you the chance to get involved in voluntary work that you can do without taking part in the programme. You will be learning about the project while you do that and finding out about how our Peer Supporters do their work, so it will give you a good grounding for the training. Please see our Training page to learn more about the training process.
If you are interested in learning more about volunteering with us, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
