Supporting families needing some extra help
Laura Ferreira, coordinator of Home-Start Wandsworth invites you:
Home-Start are looking for people to join their amazing network of volunteers supporting families with young children across the borough through home visiting and group activities. Can you help join our team and/or spread the word?
Volunteers support families who are finding it difficult to cope and provide them with emotional support, practical help and friendship. They can use the knowledge and experience gained from looking after their own family to support others who are struggling. All they need are empathy, enthusiasm and reliability.
Home-Start have a training programme to help prepare people to support families, covering a range of topics including coaching, mental health awareness, boundaries and signposting. Volunteering requires only 2 to 4 hours a week. The next Preparation Course runs for 9 sessions (9:30-14:30) on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 27th February to 27th March 2019, at 20-22 York Road, Battersea, SW11 3QA. 020 7924 5268 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
