(Edinburgh) Support + Supervision: Creating a professional support system that protects befrienders, service users and the organisation

Support and Supervision: 

What is the purpose of support and supervision for volunteers? What is the difference between support and supervision and when does support become counselling? Do new volunteers take up all your time? Is it difficult to get experienced volunteers to turn up for supervision? 

This module will help befriending workers identify the different ways of supporting their befrienders and find the balance that works best for everybody. Our time to meet and discuss matches with our volunteers is crucial to ensure boundaries are being followed and that your service is maintaining best practice.
