We are currently recruiting for Home Visiting Volunteers
To apply, please send us a completed Volunteer Application Form Nov 20 as soon as possible and we will contact you to arrange an interview.
The aim of the training course is to prepare new volunteers for their role of working with families on a face-to-face basis and to explore how we can bring about better outcomes for children. We hope to offer the sessions in person as restrictions allow and a venue will be confirmed in due course, but if necessary we will revert to online delivery.

Session 1: Wednesday 15th September 2021
Session 2: Wednesday 22nd September
Session 3: Wednesday 29th September
Session 4: Wednesday 6th October
Session 5: Wednesday 13th October
