- How we make our service inclusive
Each referral to the VIVA Loneliness project will be treated on its own merit. We will try and accommodate a range of additional needs but will be very open and honest about the limitations of support that we and the potential host organisations can provide.
- Staff SEND experience
All project staff continue to undertake relevant training to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge to support people with a wide variety of needs. If we are unable to help then we will refer on to other experts within our wide partnership.
- How our service supports providers / schools / colleges
This project is for anyone over the age of 18 who lives in Kerrier. We will work with the 2 main secondary schools and the main college in that area. In addition, we will link in with Adult Education and Link into Learning.
- Resolving disagreements, mediation and making complaints
We treat all disagreements and complaints very seriously. We have a very robust Safeguarding policy and procedure and are well versed in making referrals to the relevant authorities. There is a documented complaints policy which we encourage stakeholders to follow should they not be happy with our service.
