Those who successfully complete the course will receive a Volunteer Passport certificate and identity badge as an accredited volunteer recognised by Derbyshire County Council.

The next free course starts on April 30 at Fairfield Surestart, St Nicholas Hall, in Victoria Park Road, Buxton, SK17 7PE.

It will run from 10am until 1pm on April 30, May 7, 14 and 21 and June 11.
