Volunteer Refresher Training

An update on our Volunteer Refresher Training sessions taking place in locations across the UK

Volunteer Refresher Training

We continue to provide monthly training sessions for new and existing visitors at our HQ in London, together with regional training in locations such as Chester, Exeter and Harrogate.

Regional training dates are planned in line with the locations of volunteers who need training and also in response to the preferences indicated by volunteers on our Waiting List. If you are unable to travel to London and there are no regional training dates in convenient locations, you can provide us with three potential locations that you could travel to for training. We will then try to accommodate your requirements.

Attendees at our most recent HQ training included both long standing volunteers as well as some new faces. The refresher training, led by Volunteer Support Manager Lynne Regan, offers volunteers the chance to be brought up to date with volunteer visit procedures and our grants programme. Attendees will also receive Personal Safety training and the essential up-to-date Data Protection Act training covering the transmission of personal details of individuals we support.

It is also an opportunity to showcase the work of the charity and the achievements of our staff and volunteers as well as offering new volunteers the chance to learn first-hand what our visitors do from existing volunteers.

In line with our existing requirement for volunteers to attend a refresher training session every two years, attendance at training is required within six months of the two-year anniversary of your last training date. If training is not attended during that period, in line with a directive from the Board of Trustees, Visitors will be placed ‘on hold’ until refresher training has been completed.

If it has been over two years since you attended training, please contact Lynne Regan, Volunteer Support Manager, to find out about our plans for upcoming regional refresher sessions over the next three months. You can contact her on email: or telephone 020 8834 9274.
