    Do you have parenting experience and want to support local families or have experience of working or volunteering with children/families?Home-Start are looking for volunteers with parenting experience to help local families (with at least one child aged 8 or under) who could use some additional support.

    Our volunteers use their own experiences of parenting to help by offering emotional support and practical help to families, with the aim of enabling them to lead less stressful and more enjoyable lives.

    The needs of individual families will vary but as a Home-visiting Volunteer you could be involved in anything from engaging in fun activities with the children and helping parents with managing behaviour to practical or emotional support for the families.

    Volunteers are currently supporting families in a variety of ways for example via calls/Zoom and face to face (in a Covid safe way), the way we support families will continue to be reviewed in response to Covid-19 rules and restrictions.

    Usually volunteers support families for around 2-3 hours a week and the time is flexible to suit your availability.
