... a lot are outside of the range I am prepared to travel and are thus handed off for another volunteer to pick up and more of a pain are the calls where on contacting the referral, you find that no assistance is required because it has either already been provided by a volunteer, a family member has stepped in and done the job or the request was specifically cancelled by the referral.
Of three ‘local‘ calls between 0900 & 1030 this morning, none required assistance which begs the question of how the referrals and outcomes are being handled. Not sure it is working quite as intended and the constant alerts are a little trying.
