Service description

Wiltshire Portage is a small newly formed independent charity, which covers the whole of Wiltshire except for Swindon.

Wiltshire Portage is run by a volunteer Management committee. The Service has 8 members of staff, which is made up of a Manager/Portage Home Visitor, an administrator, and six Portage home visitors.

The Service runs term time only, it delivers mainly weekly visits, with occasional fortnightly visits.

Wiltshire Portage supports the children, we work with within their early years setting and see the children of school age into their school for the first two weeks of the school term.

Wiltshire Portage currently takes direct referrals from parents and professionals, however this will be changing in the future with Wiltshire introducing a single referral system.

Wiltshire Portage has a contract with Wiltshire Council to deliver Portage to a set number of families weekly. As Wiltshire is a charity the Service also has to fund raise to support additional families who need the Service and to manage the waiting list.
