ORGANISATION ONLY Registration: Interim Volunteer Training Toolkit

Befriending Networks Interim Volunteer Training Toolkit

Organisations, services or community groups providing a form of distance befriending during the COVID-19 pandemic may register as an organisation (please do NOT include the names and details of participating volunteers) to gain access to 6 short training videos and their accompanying reflective questions for the purposes of training volunteers during this period.

Register for 1 Place with your contact details only to gain access to these resources that you may then pass onto your volunteers. In doing so you agree that

  • you have followed an appropriate recruitment process
  • you will follow up with all of your volunteers either individually or as a virtual group, to discuss their answers to the reflective questions before they begin volunteering
  • you will keep a record of the numbers of volunteers who accessed this and will share this with Befriending Networks along with any feedback you have when it is requested

*If you are a volunteer who is interested to join a befriending organisation or are already part of an organisation and wish to take part in this training, please get in touch with your coordinator and ask them to sign up to gain access to the course.

The Interim Volunteer Training Toolkit was created as a response to the pandemic. Now that lockdown measures are beginning to ease and more services are returning to in-person or mixed models of befriending, different training information is required. Therefore, Registration for the Toolkit will finish on 31 October. Those registered will retain access to the toolkit until 30 November. By this point, a new Online Volunteer Training will become available free to the membership.
