Volunteers needed!

Do you have parenting experience and some spare time?  Would you like to help a local family with young children?

We are currently recruiting for Home Visiting volunteers and Twiglets Family Group volunteers.

To apply, please send us a completed Volunteer Application Form as soon as possible (31st August at the latest), and we will contact you to arrange an interview.

Successful applicants will be invited to an introductory meeting on Tuesday 2nd October  (10.00- 12.00) to meet other new volunteers, start the DBS process and learn more about the training course.  The aim of the training course is to prepare all new volunteers for their roles and explore how we can work with families to bring about better outcomes for young children. It is very interactive and a lot of fun. Some comments from last year’s volunteers:

I found it really brilliant. The course was really well balanced with activities and handouts etc.

Loved it! Really learned about myself.

Excellent! Great to meet other volunteers and learn from their experiences.

A great course, delivered well and learnt a lot.
