Volunteer support is critical to the work of the Trust. We want to make sure that you feel valued, happy and confident enough to carry out your role. So, in addition to your induction, we offer a range of opportunities for you to learn more about the Trust and to develop your skills.
Current learning opportunities and their benefits include:
We are committed to the highest levels of data protection. We've developed a training module to help you understand how to work with data, so that together we can offer confidential and robust support for people affected by life threatening disease.
Understanding the basic principles of safe manual handling in the workplace is an essential part of our induction and ongoing training programme. It is essential that all team members are aware of the risks involved in manual handling (including moving and lifting) and the precautions that should be taken.
The Volunteer Committee meets every 2 months on a Friday am between 11 and 12.30 at St Michael's Hospice, with volunteers from all aspects of the Trust.
The committee shapes the support we offer to Volunteers and looks at Volunteer engagement.
