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.

Charity shop benefits from training opportunity

Posted on April 25, 2018 - News, Volunteering

Home-Start Wirral has always recognised the importance of quality training for its staff and volunteers.

Our shop in Claughton Village recently benefited from a training day targeted at increasing trading income.

Staff and volunteers joined forces, and enthusiastically took on board many tips and ideas to improve the presentation of the shop and make it more appealing to customers, as well as exciting ideas to increase our sales.

Regular training opportunities not only benefit Home-Start Wirral, but demonstrate our commitment to staff and volunteers, allowing everyone to learn new skills in retail.

Why not become our next volunteer! Benefit your local community, get to work in a lovely atmosphere and meet some fabulous people.

For more information give Mandy or Sue a ring on 0151 652 0020 or just pop into the shop, you will be made very welcome.
