Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants

Caseworker Course

Course Outline Register

Originally this was a bespoke two day course aimed at those employees and volunteers of Constituent member charities preparing them to make home visits to serving and ex-seafarers. This package was based on the SSAFA Forces Help model and they kindly provided their own trainer. Since 2012, SSAFA have agreed to open their own courses to staff and volunteers from the maritime charities. This allows personnel flexible access to their numerous courses around the UK. They have also increased the maritime content in their courses.

Course Aim

At the end of the course, participants will be familiar with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to manage a client case in its entirety.

Course Objectives

  • Establish contact with a client
  • Prepare for a visit
  • Conduct an effective interview with a client
  • Complete an application for assistance (“Form A”)
  • Write a persuasive report with a request for funding
  • Almonise for funds
  • Signpost clients to services for which SSAFA Forces Help is unable to assist
  • Close a case and end contact with a client appropriately
  • Identify sources of support for volunteers and how to access them
