Volunteer Training

When you start working or volunteering for CARF, you’ll get all the training and support that you need, whatever your role.

Everyone begins with an introduction into the organisation, finding out about our aims and principles and all the work that CARF does. We'll show you how to use our computer systems and support you whilst you learn to use them.

In return, we expect all volunteers:

  • to adhere to the principle of client confidentiality
  • to follow guidelines within relative policies such as health and safety, equalities and IT
  • to be a full member of their team.

Training for General Advisers

The Generalist Adviser Training Programme (ATP) is a formal training programme which covers the main topic areas dealt with by advisers. This includes but is not limited to benefits, money advice, housing, employment, relationships and immigration.

We are reviewing and updating our training as a result of current restrictions, but you can still take part, please contact Ross Livngstone on 01592 765403.
