Launch of FINCH and induction of volunteers.















Some of the FINCH Committee












Caroline Davis, the Co-ordinator of FINCH, and Rebecca Kennelly from Chichester Voluntary Service who has been assisting the group.



 

 

 


There were 22 people at the induction meeting.  All volunteers have to checked before they can start, and this can take some time. So far 13 volunteers have had CRB checks and are ready to befriend on behalf of FINCH. 

The Finch bag will be used for carrying necessary paperwork, and advertising around the village, and at events, and maybe will be a talking point at initial visits with users of FINCH.
