What is a Support Session Volunteer?

Support Session Volunteers work with people face to face, by phone or electronically who may want to understand about advocacy and what support may be available to them through TVCP.

They may also help people to work out one-off issues, for example how to contact their GP.

These volunteers allow us to reach people who either would have to wait longer for an advocate or wouldn’t access our service at all. If necessary, these volunteers support people to refer themselves to advocacy services.

In addition, these volunteers work on producing accessible materials to help to more people to understand advocacy services.

What will I do?

You’ll attend one of our weekly Support Sessions (at the same time and location each week) to undertake some of the tasks describes above.

Before the session, the Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to let you know what tasks you will be undertaking. At the end of the session the Volunteer Coordinator will call to check everything has gone ok.

You will write up notes and send these to the Volunteer Co-ordinator.

This role requires a commitment of approximately 3 hours a week; 2 hours for the Support Session and about 1 hour to write up notes.
