Welcome to the on-line short course on Volunteering in the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). CHSP services support older people to stay living as independently as they can in their own homes.

This course has 10 short modules including this one. Each module looks at one important part of work in the CHSP for volunteers.

At the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of how the CHSP works, what it is hoping to achieve and how you can be a part of this.

All you need to do is read the modules and, if you like, do a short quiz at the end. You can also download the modules if you want.
