Our volunteers all have parenting experience which they can share with families so that they can give the right support at the right time in a way that suits each family individually. Our volunteers do all of this as an integral part of our friendly, supportive Home-Start team.
For some people, being a parent can be overwhelming. Many of the parents that Home-Start supports don’t have an established support network of family and friends to help them. A friendly connection once a week can make such a difference to someone who is struggling – a lifeline of support.
If you could give as little as two hours a week to support a parent and their children then get in touch today. Our next course for volunteers begins at the end of February 2021 and if you’re a mum dad, grandparent or carer we would love to hear from you. With your knowledge and experience developed through being a parent or carer, you could be the vital support a family needs to help change their life, and while you’re doing it, it might just change yours!
