Volunteer Training supporting families where children have additional needs


Oct 13, 2015

Volunteer training to support families where children have additional needs.

Wednesday 9th December 9.45 - 2.30pm at Home-Start office in Exeter.  Places are limited so contact Anna or Rachel to reserve a place asap.

The aim of this training is to explore some of the issues around supporting families where a child has a disability or additional needs, e.g. autism, adhd, learning disability, physical disability. The training will also address the fears or concerns that volunteers might have when supporting such families.

The training is being delivered by Face2Face a befriending service offering one to one emotional support for parents of disabled children or those with additional needs.

This training has been organised, in part, as a recommendation from our recent external evaluation where both parents and volunteers said that there was “scope to improve volunteers skills and training in this area”.
