Home Visiting – Structure

The Home Visiting Service is led by a designated Co-ordinator who receives all referrals and carries out an initial home visit and risk assessment.

The Co-ordinator provides ongoing support and guidance to all volunteers involved in the Home Visiting Service.

    • Adult Safeguarding
    • Communication Skills
    • Confidentiality
    • Dementia Awareness
    • Lone Working
  • Training for volunteers is ongoing.
  • Volunteers have undertaken Enhanced DBS screening and carry a photo-identity badge when on a home visit.
  • Volunteers may claim mileage expenses for each visit.
  • Our volunteers are not trained or authorised to provide personal care to the client but do have access to an emergency personal care provider as and when required.
  • The service has full Insurance for all the volunteers.
