How can a Volunteer help?

Information, Advice and Support Kent (IASK) recruit volunteers to support us in providing independent support to parents/carers and young people age 16-25.

A volunteer can:

  • help you through the maze of education and health and social care where it is linked to education
  • help you to be fully involved as a partner in your or your child’s education
  • listen to your concerns and help you to express your views
  • help you to access relevant and up-to-date information
  • explain about needs assessments, statements and Education, Health and Care Plans
  • explain procedures and choices
  • help you to fill in forms, write letters and reports
  • go with you to meetings.

Volunteers receive training from the service and undertake the IPSEA on line training.

We provide on-going support for volunteers.
