Association Visitor Training

Delivering training online

 

Thirteen branches and groups donated £56,360 towards the training of new AVs.

“Pat, my AV, is brilliant. She’s been so helpful, especially at the beginning when I had so many questions. She knows what to do. She takes a lot of pressure off me and the family. I can go to her at any time with anything. She’s like a family friend now” Dean

Project update: Last year we trained 21 new AVs. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic we’ve now launched a new online learning journey and  have over 40 new volunteers who have started or are waiting to start online AV training . The new approach involves  a mixture of individual e-learning and live classroom training delivered via Zoom by our area support coordinators (ASCs) and video resources. We continue to invest in the development of remote learning opportunities going forward into 2021.

 

Thank you for your support of our 2019 Chief Executive’s appeal which raised £280,000.
