Home-Start East Surrey – Volunteers Needed!

Could you help make a difference to vulnerable families with young children in your local area?

Are you a parent or a grandparent with 3 hours per week to spare?

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young. Your experience as a parent can help other parents.

Full training provided – Next course starts on 24th January 2019

An enhanced DBS check will be undertaken

Home-Start East Surrey is a local charity which provides regular support, friendship and practical help for families with young children who are struggling to cope.  Our volunteers visit families weekly and work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the difficulties they are facing.

We are looking for volunteers who can attend an 8 week preparation course starting in January (one day a week, within school hours and not including school holidays) and can then commit to visiting a local family once a week for 2-3 hours.  For more information please email:  volunteer@varb.org.uk
