The workshop is for all staff/volunteers that come into contact with vulnerable adults who may be at risk of abuse or neglect and will provide participants with a basic awareness of adult safeguarding.
This course will give an overview of how your organisation could better support employees or volunteers with mental health needs and an understanding of the relevant frameworks and policies that should be in place.
This practical workshop will look into the most common reasons that you may not be able to recruit new volunteers/retain your existing volunteers and identify ways that you can ensure that these do not hinder your organisations’ volunteer recruitment.
This workshop will help you to develop your skills to find, apply for and gain employment. It includes topics such as confidence building, CV tips and interview skills.
If you are new to managing or recruiting volunteers then this workshop will help to build your knowledge, skills and confidence by providing a range of information and tips to make sure that your organisation can effectively involve volunteers.
The Mental Health First Aid Two Day course from Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England teaches people to recognise the signs that someone may need support with their mental health and offer help on a first aid basis. As a Mental Health First Aider you will be able to start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace. This course is fully funded so free to delegates.
This course will help you to make sure that your organisation has adequate policies and frameworks for supporting employees and volunteers with mental health needs and that it is able to effectively implement them throughout the organisation.
