Independent Visitors act as mentors to children in care• promoting the child’s developmental, social, emotional, educational, religious and cultural needs. The functions are to visit, advise and befriend the child. Ideally you would visit the child once a month and NYAS like a two year commitment if possible. Expenses are paid and training is given.
Annelise Widdowson, lives near Exeter, volunteers as an Independent Visitor and she says: “"I really enjoy making a difference to a child's life. You get matched with a child who is in care and meet up with them once a month. I have built a trusting relationship with the child I have been matched with. We have great fun together and I feel it is a very special and privileged volunteering role."
