For Current VolunteersWe would like to thank all our volunteers for your ongoing efforts. On this page, you'll find details on forthcoming events and training, the expense claim form, and the visitor feedback form.
Volunteer Visitor Groups
There are five groups, roughly divided geographically, which meet approximately every six weeks to discuss informally and confidentially their experiences with visiting. These groups are: Brighton, Crawley, Horsham, Oxted and Reigate. Please contact the office for further information.
GDWG offers a ‘Buddy system’ to connect new visitors to those with more experience for advice and support. Please contact the office if you would like to be put in touch with a buddy.
GDWG offers regular external training on a range of topics, such as Drugs Awareness, Understanding Trauma, and Suicide Awareness, which were offered in 2018. Please contact the office for notes on past trainings. Future trainings will be posted here.
There is also an up-to-date Visitors Handbook, which is given to all new volunteers.
Loomio is an on-line platform for organising and sharing ideas. It can also be used for organising meetings and lift-sharing to Brook and Tinsley Houses. Like most shared resources, the more people who are involved, the better it works. Please contact the office to receive the link for you to join Loomio.
