Details of Role: 

Home-Start Bristol offers free, confidential support, friendship and practical help to parents in Bristol and South Gloucestershire who are going through a challenging time and have at least one child under the age of five.

Our trained and carefully selected volunteers are all parents themselves or have had caring responsibilities and understand the challenges families may be facing. They regularly visit families outside or in their own home, offering emotional and practical support to help families through difficult times. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.

Volunteer with us and you will:

  • Make a difference to the lives of families you support
  • Improve your own mental health and well-being
  • Access free, high quality training
  • Give something back to your community
  • Gain valuable experience for a career in family support
  • Make new friends with fellow volunteers

The course is being held 9.30-2.30 at the Greenway Centre, Doncaster Road, Southmead BS10 5PY.
