Once a referral has come through to the team, the PLW’s contact you and arrange a suitable appointment. PLW’s will only do home visits when they are supporting a professional. They will assess your needs and guide you to solutions and as required sign post you to relevant agencies whilst offering continued non-judgemental support.
In addition to signposting and referral pathways, we offer you practical support such as buddying clients to GP appointments, social activities and job centre appointments.
Shine is preparing to recruit the next group of volunteers* to be trained to become PLW’s in Lincolnshire. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone that wants to give back by volunteering. Shine offers a very supportive, understanding and encouraging environment for volunteers to grow, build their skills, develop their self-esteem, meet new people and be part of a team that love what they do.
