The SCLT fully complies with all requirements of the Charity Commission. All volunteers receive routine supervision and guidance from the initiative leader.With the support of Home Office Transformation funding, the project sought to extend the reach of the voluntary work and to produce guidance to enable a roll out of this model in other forces.
