Project Recovery Helpline Volunteer Training | UB4 0JT | Saturday, 29. June 2019

NishkamSWAT has recognised that alcohol and drug abuse is an issue within our community. Project Recovery has been initiated to provide support and guidance to those who are:

trying to overcome an alcohol/drug addiction

family and friends affected by someone else's addiction. 

Project Recovery will launch a Helpline, which will provide first line support to those who require our support and guidance. Prior to volunteering on the Helpline, volunteers will be required to complete the Helpline Training and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. 

The one-day training course will outline the following information:

how the Helpline will operate 

your role as a Helpline volunteer

details of the support and guidance NishkamSWAT can provide to those in need

The day will also include interactive elements, that will enable volunteers to gain an understanding of the type of calls they can expect to manage. 

If a volunteer application form and DBS check has not been initiated prior to the training these will need to be completed, while at training. In which case you will be required to provide two forms of identification e.g. driving license, passport or a utility bill (within the last three months). 
Refreshments will be provided, however, volunteers will be required to bring their own lunch. Only vegetarian food can be brought into the training centre. 
WHERE ARE WE?As you drive onto Springfield Rd, a few hundred feet to your left is Sira Cash & Carry; turn left into the Sira Cash & Carry car park. Next to Sira's on the left in the same compound is another warehouse; the entrance for the training is on the side of the warehouse. A big red shutter will be partly open for you to come in. As you walk through the warehouse you will see a staircase near the back on the left, please come up, this is where the training will take place.
