Volunteer Support Workers
ACS recruits volunteers through various avenues, job centre, collage, The Ayrshire Community Trust and word of mouth. Each individual be required to attend interview, complete a 7 session volunteer induction training course ( 3hrs once per week) and register with the PVG scheme. On completion each trainee graduate will then go onto complete a work induction over a 2 week period and attend an interview, before being able to volunteer for ACS.
Once the above has been completed and 2 x references and satifactory PVG registration has been obtained. ACS staff will work with each volunteer to plan their future personal development and a Personal Development Plan will be constructed, at ACS we believe in “pathways to employment” and gave all those wishing to develop their careers support to secure furture employment.
