Volunteers needed. Children/Young Adults Home Visitors - Homestart

Our volunteers are usually parents themselves or have parenting experience, are all ages and come from all walks of life.

All volunteers initially attend a preparation course, usually one session per week for 6 sessions. They are required to provide two references and undergo an Enhanced Check from the Disclosure & Barring Service. At the end of the course, volunteers will be matched to a referred family by the Home-Start Co-ordinator.

Volunteers visit families weekly in their own home to provide the practical or emotional support that has been identified as being needed by that family. They may also accompany the family to a mother and toddler group, a session at their local Children’s Centre, to a doctor’s appointment, on outings or shopping if that is the support they need.

THE NEXT COURSE STARTS SEPTEMBER 2017
