Volunteering for CARDS

Supervision and coaching

Supervision is a vital part of volunteering for CARDS. It is our chance to support and learn from you.

Firstly a note on SUPERVISION

As a CARDS Volunteer you have agreed to attend at least three supervision sessions a year as part of your role. We have made several dates available throughout the year. You also have the opportunity for one to one supervision sessions on request.

CARDS Volunteers Group Supervision and Training

The group supervision session for volunteers runs on the last Thursday or Wednesday of the month. Throughout 2023 we will be combining the group supervision with training to support your ongoing learning and development. These sessions will be held in person at the SPACES office in Fountainbridge. To register for this session simply text the CARDS number on 07715082428 with your name, email and which session you wish you attend. Kiera will also be sending out an email reminder each month with a link to the Eventbrite page where you can also register.
