A. I have a current up to date enhanced DBS check and have been working with young people and vulnerable adults for over 20 years. All our volunteers also have a current up to date enhanced DBS check .
Q. Can we have contact with our son/daughter on the programme?.
A. Due to our remote field location, telephone calls are generally not permitted as this would break the continuity of the programme, however, you may contact me weekly by phone or text and either I will update you on your young persons progress or you may be able to talk to your young person, if they wish to do so.
Q. Is there any financial help available to fund your programme?
A. Unfortunately there is no external financial help available that we are aware of.
Q. How long do most young people stay?
A. The minimum stay is 7 days, however, the average stay can be up to 14 days or longer. Some young people may need, or want, to stay longer, depending on how quickly they respond to the programme.
Q. How can I make the payment if my application is successful ?
A. All payments can be made by BACS.
