These are recruitment and information sessions for Manchester Volunteer Advice Partnership’s (MVAP) next round of training.

We run 9-week training courses (sessions every Tuesday) teaching you how to give good quality advice on welfare benefits and housing, as well as assertiveness and communication skills. During this training, you will also be placed at either Manchester Refugee Support Network or Cheetham Hill Advice Centre for half a week day (usually Monday or Wednesday) to volunteer as an advice worker.

The training covers the specifics of welfare benefits and housing, as well as assertiveness and communication skills.

We will begin each event with an overview of what is involved in the training and volunteering placements. You will then have the opportunity to meet the inclusion support officer and the volunteer co-ordinators to discuss any questions and concerns.

We want to keep an eye on numbers due to Covid-19 concerns, so please email Amby to let them know that you plan to come. Please do not come if you have symptoms.

Feel free to email Amby with any questions. Amby will also run a Zoom recruitment session if there is sufficient interest, so please let me know if you would prefer this
