TNRM 101 – the Practical Handbook you can’t buy, but can read for FREE


Dawn, CWS’s Director of Operations, maintains a blog, where she shares her experiences working with volunteer care-givers (like btmao and I), skirmishing with complainants, and the bureaucracy.

She offers insightful views and advice on what to do when things happen, very good stuff. So here’s my grand idea: I’m going to post links to Dawn’s blog entries that I think gives good advice or info that’s representative of a given situation (as there’s many on-going ones, and lots of deja-vu ones), and maintain the list on an ongoing basis.

I’ve learnt a lot from reading Dawn’s blog, and gained a few insights about the practical/operational aspects. In a nutshell, when doing TNRM, I think knowledge is power. Remember this credo: “Don’t panic, know your rights. If you haven’t done anything wrong, Big Brother can’t book you.”
