EPC will run a two-day course on 31 July and 1 August on how to establish and run a successful volunteer biography service. While suitable for organisations across a range of sectors, EPC’s model uses biography as a proven therapeutic tool to address issues such as anxiety, depression, isolation and loss of purpose in some people with terminal illness.
Paired with other resources available for purchase (including full and customizable volunteer training notes), this comprehensive training offers a biography service which is ready to roll out. EPC’s volunteer biography program is the largest in Australia and its volunteers have completed over 1,000 biographies. Training is available only to staff of non-profit organisations. 2-day session including hard copies of train-the-trainer notes, policies/processes, guidelines and forms costs $880 (inc. GST). Call Krystal or Penelope on 1300 130 813 for information or bookings.
