  • Be over 21 years and up to 65 years old
  • Attend training
  • Current driver’s licence

Volunteers are also required to see their linked child for one day per month on the weekend or perhaps during school holidays. After 6 months this may increase to one overnight stay per month provided the volunteer has a spare bedroom and the child is happy to stay over.
