Volunteer Training

TPS Volunteer Training

Each year up to 20 new volunteers undertake the ten week TPS training programme. Autumne Camidge co-ordinates the training which is held one day a week for the duration of the course.

The course is professionally run and is in two parts:

  1. The formal training which covers topics such as Communication, Grief and Bereavement, Complementary Therapies, Culture, and Spiritual Care.
  2. The practical training where each volunteer is partnered with an experienced “buddy” who will assist them as they settle in to their role as a volunteer carer.
It is a requirement that all volunteers allow a Police check and sign a Confidentiality Agreement.

Please call us. We’d love to hear from you.
