Volunteering

 

web_volunteer_mum_baby-webThere are several ways that you can help Home-Start North West Hampshire in a voluntary capacity:

  • by supporting a family as a home-visiting volunteer
  • by becoming a trustee
  • by helping us with fundraising

Home-Start North West Hampshire’s family support volunteers come from many different backgrounds and vary in age but all are either parents themselves or have parenting experience. All volunteers attend a preparation course before being matched with a family. They then take their own individual skills and experience to the families they visit.

A Home-Start Volunteer says…

“I have been a Home-Start volunteer for the past year and it has had such a positive impact on the family I visit weekly and also for me personally. It is incredible how much of a difference just a couple of hours chatting with Mum or playing with a toddler can make. It’s hugely rewarding and a great privilege.”

The Home-Start North West Hampshire Management Committee is made up of local people from a wide range of backgrounds. The main requirements of a trustee are a real interest in the family support work we undertake and a willingness to be involved and active in the running of the charity. The committee ensures correct governance and is responsible for the financial security of the organisation.

Ruth Tellis, Chair of Home-Start North West Hampshire Board of Trustees says…

Home start is unique in the individual support and relationships that are built up between volunteers and families, making it an extremely effective service and very satisfying for those of us who work with the organisation – trustees, staff and volunteers.  We have exciting projects ahead of us this year, and we value all your support in being able to deliver these.

If you can help us we would love to hear from you, please Contact Us.
