Being an Appropriate Adult can be a rewarding role and if desired the council can offer support in gaining a qualification as an approved Appropriate Adult. The main requirement is that you either work or live in the borough of Wandsworth and are willing to give up some of your time to this cause.

If you are interested in the role or finding out more information please call (020) 8871 6222 or email

Training is due to start in mid-September, so now is the time to get your application in!
