We value the time given by Disability Can Do volunteers and to ensure they are supported to deliver high quality and effective services to people who contact us. Induction and training is given to everyone, whether you are new or been with us for many years. All volunteers are inducted about the organisation, procedures, policy and health and safety. Where necessary, volunteers receive training specific to their role if there are any gaps or changes locally/nationally.

    1. Introduction to Disability Can Do
    2. Who we are and what we do
    3. People involved in the organisation

What our volunteers have to say about their training provision:

"The Training with Can Do is terrific. They supply training classes in all subjects required to help you in doing your work efficiently"

"All courses have been good, some have been excellent."

"I feel I have received the correct external training to improve my skills and get paid work for 16 hours a week."

"All courses I have done have been relevant to the work that I do with Disability Can Do. I have done Advocacy awareness training, computer courses, POVA and training on benefits."
