There are no formal requirements for participation in the Someone Like Me training programme. Previous participants have come from PCTs, Local Authority Physical Activity and Sports Development departments and age related NGOs. It is helpful if participants have experience of health promotion with older people, working with volunteers and a knowledge of physical activity.
LLT do not deliver training to groups of local volunteers, as evidence from practice suggests that this is inappropriate and that volunteers are best trained by local professionals and partnerships and those who will support them.
