‘What makes HBF stand apart is how everyone here attends to our clients. The respect, compassion, and personal care we offer is such a marked contrast from how they are treated by UK officials, and I think that makes a huge difference in these people’s lives. To be a part of that has been an extraordinary experience for me.’
-Lil Foote, Admin Volunteer
We are always careful to ensure the best interest of the clients that we serve. We ensure Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, previously CRB) clearance checks are carried out for all volunteers. They are also required to sign and understand a formal confidentiality agreement. All volunteers are in turn supported by permanent members of staff.
