Home-Start North Somerset is recruiting volunteers now to start our next preparation course in January 2018.
Home-Start North Somerset is a charity which helps families who have children under 5, who may be facing difficulties by providing friendly, practical and emotional support.
Families may be facing a range of difficulties such as low mood, anxiety or depression, multiple birth, isolation, disability or generally not coping with family life. You will visit the families in their own homes for 2-3 hours a week and help them to get back on track by offering non-judgemental advice and support.
To apply you need to be a parent or grandparent yourself and be able to commit to volunteering for up to a year. All families that we support are based in North Somerset. In return we offer a comprehensive training programme which takes place one morning a week over a 10 week period.
Once you are matched to a family we offer continuous support and training. We will pay out of pocket expenses.
All applicants will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and referenced.
