Lone Working whilst volunteering

Notifications (shift/scheduled activity only)

Volunteers will receive a notification 30 minutes after you have accepted an activity which requires lone working. It will remind you to use the Lone Working function if you are on your own with a person you are supporting.  

Volunteers will also receive a notification reminding them to turn off Lone Working when the duration entered on the app has expired.  

If Lone Working is not turned off, our support Team has set procedures to follow if volunteers are not able to be contacted. Please ensure the Lone Working function is being used efficiently during your visits to avoid unnecessary work which could result in the emergency services being contacted.
