Volunteer Passport Scheme

The Volunteer Passport Scheme is a Slough initiative, which offers a series of four short training modules exploring the key areas all volunteers need to successfully volunteer with clients. These modules give participants the basic skills, awareness, confidence and knowledge required to volunteer. The training modules can be booked in any order and take place at the Main Room, 29 Church Street, Slough, Berkshire, SL1 1PL.
