Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

This training is for CLAPA Parent and Peer Supporters, Happy Faces Co-ordinators and volunteers who run certain other events for us without a staff member (e.g. adult meet ups).

Our volunteers performing these roles are often the main point of contact for new and expectant parents affected by cleft or individuals with a cleft themselves seeking support. We hugely value your commitment and dedication to the role and want to make sure we are supporting you as much as possible with robust processes, regular communication and opportunities to develop your knowledge and skills.

Much of the content of our previous parent/peer supporter training is relevant to all these roles and many volunteers perform more than one of the roles so to save everybody's time and to avoid repetition we have brought it all together into one development day.

Where specific material is only relevant to some roles we will split the group as appropriate but we will ensure that all attendees cover all the topics they need for their role/s.

As you should be aware, all Parent and Peer Supporters are required to attend annual refresher training in order to continue undertaking that role. It is also reccommended that Happy Faces/Adult Meet up Co-ordinators would also refresh their training annually.

We understand that in exceptional circumstances it may not be not possible for you to attend the training, in which case please get in touch with your main point of contact at CLAPA so we can talk to you about this.

We will cover all reasonable travel expenses and lunch will be provided, please remember to travel by the cheapest mode of transport where possible. If you would be unable to travel from your home to Edinburgh in time for the course starting (or alternatively travel home after the course) we can provide 1 night's accomodation. Please indicate this need on your booking and then discuss with Rebecca or Gillian.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the training!
