Independent Visitors (IV's)
How long are people expected to be Independent Visitors?
We ask for volunteers to commit to a young person for a minimum of two years.
Most volunteers develop a good relationship with the young person they are matched with.
In some cases IV's have carried on visiting a young person for many years and their relationship has continued until the young person leaves the care system and beyond.
At other times, the relationship comes to a natural end as the young person grows older, or the circumstances of the volunteer or young person may change.
