Successful scheme to go county wide

A SUCCESSFUL pilot scheme to help train volunteers to work with children and young people is to go countywide.

The Derbyshire Volunteer Passport Scheme was developed by Derbyshire County Council – in partnership with the voluntary, community and independent sector.

Volunteers are offered training sessions on first aid, health and safety, keeping children safe, equal opportunities, and consulting with young people.
