How are families referred?

We accept referrals from any childcare organisation, but mainly families are referred by their Health Visitor or Social Worker, however families can refer themselves to the scheme. See this page about referrals

For how long does a volunteer visit?

It may be for just a few weeks, a few months or even years- depending on your needs and what our volunteers are able to offer. We will always discuss any changes with families first.

*Any information kept is confidential and will only be shared on consent. However any information will be shared with the relevant authorities if staff feel the safety / welfare of a child/ren is at risk. We work under the Data Protection Act 1998.
