Can you make a difference?

Posted on April 28, 2018 - News, Volunteers

Here at Home-Start Wirral we passionately believe that it is parents that are key in creating the secure and nurturing environment that will allow their children to flourish.

Life can often be a challenge, and a little bit of help when it’s most needed can make all the difference, allowing families to build their confidence and make the right choices for their children.

Could you be a Home-Start family support volunteer, providing non-judgemental practical and emotional support in a family’s own home for 3 hours a week?

If you are a parent or grandparent and can commit to completing a 10 week training course one day a week, you could be taking the first step to an extremely rewarding role as a Home-Start family support volunteer.

There are two opportunities coming up for new volunteers to complete the 10 week course of preparation:

Course 1
Monday 30th April, 9:30am to 2:30pm, for 10 weeks.
Home-Start Hub, Woodchurch Lane
[No session on Monday 7th May (May Day bank holiday) and Monday 28th May (Half term week)]

Course 2
Tuesday 1st May, 9:30am to 2:30pm, for 10 weeks.
Training room above Morrisons, New Brighton
[No session on Tuesday 29th May (Half term week)]

To find out more or to discuss booking a place on one of the two courses, give one of our friendly team a ring on 0151 608 8288.

Home-Start Wirral are looking to recruit family support volunteers who may be interested in supporting families dealing with mental health issues.

If you think you could make a difference to parents and children facing great difficulties, this ten week course could be just for you.

It may be that you would like to give something back to your local community, perhaps return the support you once received from Home-Start, or maybe just share similar experiences.

Whatever your motives, and they could be many, give us a ring and find out if this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.

Starting Tuesday 9th May — 9.30am to 2.30pm
