We support families with young children who are struggling to cope with family life. Our volunteers visit a family every week helping them find solutions to their problems and put the fun back into family life.
Are you a parent or grandparent? Can you offer 2-3 hours a week to visit a family? If so, why not become a volunteer with Home-Start.
We offer our volunteers initial training, accredited to the OCN, ongoing support and opportunities for further training.

Our training courses run 3 times a year at various locations around Bristol. The next course starts Tuesday 17 September at the Phoenix Social Enterprise, Redfield, 10-2pm and will run for 9 weeks on Thursdays, breaking for any school holidays. The on-going commitment is to spend 2-3 hours per week visiting a family and be able to commit to volunteering for at least a year.
Volunteering is dependent on an enhanced DBS check
