Supporting People - Lay Assessors

Would you like to do something to help other service users? Why not become a lay assessor?

Lay assessors carry out an important role by helping to make sure that vulnerable people get the right kind of support for their needs.

If you become a lay assessor, your benefits will not be affected. You will also be given expenses and other rewards for your commitment.

To become a lay assessor you must be:

  • able to attend training sessions

  • willing to attend service reviews and interview service users and members of staff

  • willing to pass on your skills to new trainees

  • willing to undergo a police check.

You will get:

  • training and support

  • a contemporary CV

  • references

  • a record of achievement.
