Volunteer Induction Process

The Induction Process is essential for anyone involved in the care and education of the residents within William Blake House. Induction takes approximately two weeks to complete.

The First Step

It starts when you arrive with a course that goes over important elements of the Volunteer Information Handbook, such as health and safety, adult protection, house life. You will also participate in Emergency First Aid and moving and handling training at this time.

Meet The Team

At an early stage you will be introduced to your new colleagues and to the residents with whom you will live and work. A key part of your learning in these early days will be the regular supervision talks that you will have with your house co-ordinator or other senior volunteer delegated to support you. This person will encourage you to think about how you are developing and seek to support and challenge you to grow further. You will be expected to keep track of your progress and demonstrate your skills and understanding through everyday activities, conversation, and completing written worksheets and notes. Completing induction is essential preparation for moving on to mainstream activities at William Blake House.
