Our fantastic team of friendly volunteers offer support to local families, and are we always looking for more people to join us.
Currently we are mainly operating by remote means, using the telephone but we have completed our risk assessment process for commencing some essential home visits and will continue to adapt to ensure we deliver our service safely.
People volunteer for all sorts of reasons, whether it's to meet new people, learn new skills and increase their confidence, or to make a contribution to their local communities. Our volunteers come from all walks of life. They are parents or have parenting experience themselves which enables them to understand some of the challenges that our families often face.
We deliver 6 training sessions for all our new volunteers. Its an opportunity to learn about the Charity, the support Home-Start gives and to gain experience and to meet others in a warm and friendly atmosphere, with that all important cuppa! All of our volunteers receive ongoing support, and there are opportunities to meet up and socialise.

'We really enjoyed the time we spent with our Volunteer as she offered all the support in every way and was such a caring and helpful person and has helped me back on the road to be my normal self.'
