New Ambassador Volunteer Induction Training

We have 20 volunteers trained come and join our project!

17 March 2020 – Tiverton – please book your place here!

Are you a parent, carer and/or professional interested in championing change and influencing policy for children and young people with SEND?

The aim of this training is to prepare volunteers who would like to be a link in their own community.

The Ambassador Volunteer will help parents become informed, know how to access Devon information advice and support services (DiAS) and have their voice heard.

By the end of the day you will have:

  • An understanding of the Ambassador Volunteer project, how the Ambassador Volunteer role works as a link between parent/ carers- the Parent Carer Forum Devon and SEND local offer services to influence change for children with SEND
  • A greater awareness of DiAS services and how parent/ carers can access information advice and support for children with SEND
  • An understanding around the key principles of volunteering.

PLEASE NOTE: After the 1-day training those interested in continuing on to actively work in their communities as Ambassador Volunteer will be invited to a 1 to 1 planning session with the coordinator in order to match skills and interests with Ambassador Volunteer activities. At this meeting they will agree planned activities and support required for them to undertake their role as volunteer.

This course runs 10-2.30pm and is a mandatory aspect for becoming an Ambassador Volunteer in Devon.

A light lunch and refreshments throughout the day are provided.
