Volunteering for Home-Start

Could you help struggling parents in Lambeth build better lives for their children ? At Home –Start volunteers befriend and visit local families for a few hours a week. The families need help for a variety of reasons eg a disabled child or postnatal depression.

Home-Start runs free comprehensive training schemes for potential volunteers. The aim is to support parents to grow in confidence, strengthen their relationship with their children and widen their links to the local community

Bolu Heather is the Volunteer Coordinator at the charity and says volunteers gain a huge amount from their working with Home –Start. For some volunteers the experience at Home-Start leads to new paid job opportunities.
