Penny Ball (aka Taylor) reflects on 11 years working with the Wandsworth Portage Service.
'The Promise' charity are seeking professional volunteers with experience of both delivering and training in Portage, to provide advice and support to new Portage teams in Russia and Bulgaria.
If you could spare 1-2 hours a week to share your knowledge and skills via email and Skype with newly trained Portage Workers they would love to hear from you.
The charity is also looking for people who are keen to work with the teams providing advice and hands-on training. Flexible volunteering opportunities available, full support and possible funding available.
In December 2016 Jane McHale and Tracey Harvey led a Portage workshop in Chisinau, Moldova.
A unique opportunity has arisen to work with researchers from the Open University on using the ‘In the Picture’ approach within Portage practice.
