Orientation before departure (residential)* Country specific training and materials Food and accommodation Health clearance and medical advice Project setup and supervision Residential debrief weekend Comprehensive insurance cover Admin costs - DBS, application process, resources etc. £50 towards project material e.g. bricks, paint, wood, cement, crafts/ art supplies etc. What's not covered? Return flights Vaccinations - some of them costs money Pre-departure UK travel - We usually book flights from London so you all fly out together as a team. Personal spending money Orientation We think it is of utmost importance to prepare our volunteers well and so hold a compulsory Orientation for all those wishing to take part in Step. It is a residential Orientation weekend (Friday-Sunday) so food and accommodation will be provided and the cost covered by your contribution target - all you need to do is get there! *Orientation for 2018 will be held just outside Reading from 22nd - 24th June.
