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 Hub break-in.

Staff, volunteers and users of the Home-Start Hub in Woodchurch Lane, Prenton, have been left devasted after a break-in on Monday night.

Although the thieves left empty-handed, they caused a considerable amount of damage, ripping the fire alarm off the wall and damaging doors. It will cause a lot of disruption and upset to families using the centre.

Home-Start Wirral is a charity that supports families who are going through difficult times for a variety of reasons, including illness, disability of a child or bereavement.

The ‘Home-Start Hub’ opened at the former premises of the ‘Wirral Toy Library’ in Woodchurch Lane, in 2013.

Funded by various organisations including Wirral Council and public donations, it’s volunteers have supported 8,171 families over the last 15 years and will continue to do so.
