How we can help

We work with young people aged 7-18 who live in the care of the Local Authority and Care Leavers aged 18 – 25.

Independent Visitors are volunteers who befriend young people, advise and support them during their time in care offering a listening ear, do fun activities, and are friendly consistent role models. We will provide accredited training through Certa and all the skills you need to become an Independent Visitor with ongoing support after training. Our Independent Visitors visit their young person under 18 once a month for a minimum of two years. For Care Leavers, visits are more frequent for a shorter period of time.


You can find out more about Independent Visiting nationwide on the National Independent Visitors Network website.
