Home-Start is a voluntary organisation in which volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families with at least one child under 5 who are experiencing stress or difficulties. This may be because families are:
• feeling isolated in their communities
• finding it hard to cope because of their own or their children’s illness
• suffering a bereavement
• struggling to cope with the demands of caring for twins or triplets

They are looking for volunteers who have parenting experience, have a non-judgmental outlook and a caring and sensitive attitude towards others. Volunteers will visit families in their own homes to offer regular support, friendship and practical help in order to reassure parents that their problems are not unusual and to encourage their strengths and emotional well-being for the benefit of their children. All volunteers receive high quality training and an enhanced criminal records check before they are matched with a family.
