Thank you for requesting a PAT visit.
The provision of a volunteer and the time it may take to arrange this will depend on the numbers in your area and whether the available teams are a match to both parties’ requirements.
As the Charity adapts to an ever-changing landscape, we also face the challenge of increasing costs in various areas including compliance such as Safeguarding and GDPR, we ask that you make an annual payment of £60 for each volunteer placed in your establishment and that you to reimburse any out of pocket expenses that the volunteer may incur, such as parking fees.
Please note that the visits must take place in a communal area of the Establishment (lounge/tv room) and not in a client’s private rooms or flat and that we are unable to accompany your clients on walks away from the premises. Staff must be present and available to support the activity whilst the volunteer is on the premises.
Please note that our volunteers are reference checked only, if your Establishment requires the volunteer to have a CRB/DBS or similar check then we ask that you arrange to do this for the volunteer you are accepting to visit. There should be no cost to the volunteer for this requirement.
