We are currently seeking new Home Visiting Volunteers to attend the next Preparation Training Course.  We are currently looking at alternative venues for training in the future in order to improve the training experience.  Training dates for 2019 will follow soon!

Volunteer Support/Training  The training for 2019 is being prepared and topics are likely to include Children’s mental health and attachment.

Safeguarding Up-date  Please report any concerns you have about the welfare pf a child immediately using the relevant telephone numbers on your contact card.  It is also advisable to store the numbers in your mobile phone.  As staff work part-time hours, please ensure you have Amanda’s mobile number.

Safeguarding Training  It is imperative that all staff, trustees and volunteers must be aware of and work within the procedures of the Home-Start Spelthorne Safeguarding Policy.  Volunteers must be aware of boundaries and must complete a permission form with the parent if they are to have sole responsibility for a child, e.g. taking a child to the park.  It is our joint responsibility to Safeguard children and promote their well being.  Annual up-dates and refresher training will be provided and everyone must attend when invited.  Please remember to contact us to discuss any concerns you have using the telephone numbers on your contact card!

Please note:  our current Safeguarding Advisor is Sue Price, please update your records accordingly.

Volunteers please remember the training we provide is at your request.  Please contact the Office with any topics you would like covered.
