No. We recognise and encourage that you have another part-time role and/or be studying. We do ask, however, that you treat the house as your home.

Can I go away at weekends or on holiday? Yes, and we would encourage you to get away from time to time. If you do intend to be away from the house either for a night or two or for a longer holiday, we ask that you let us know of your plans as soon as possible. This will enable us to assess whether we need to cover your absence with volunteers and therefore give us time to make arrangements if they are needed. We encourage around 28 nights away from the house per annum.
