Proposed interview date (if applicable): 8pm on Wednesday 02/11/2022. Applicants progressed to interview will receive interview invites on Monday 31/10/2022 and no further interview dates will be possible, so we ask that you apply only if you will be available for the advertised course dates and this interview date, due to the very tight turnaround required for the planned course start.
DBS required: Yes (BfN will arrange this at no cost to volunteers)
Upon qualifying, trainees must be able to commit time to regularly volunteering at a face-to-face support group. Qualified trainees must attend ongoing supervision and learning once a month to maintain BfN registration.
In order to best meet local needs and support future planning, applications for those who will volunteer in Gloucester City and Newent may be prioritised and the application form will ask you to indicate if this applies to you.
