How you can help

group picWe recruit and train volunteers, who are usually parents themselves, to visit families at home. They offer informal, friendly and confidential support.

Home-Start volunteers are of all ages and from all walks of life. They are caring and committed, and usually visit one family for 2-3 hours a week, for however long the help is needed.

We provide free training for new volunteers on a short course of preparation before being linked to a family (see Forthcoming events).

Volunteers' needs are met by on-going training days, regular support meetings and the support of the scheme's Co-ordinators at all times.

If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a volunteer, please contact us.

If you wish to support our work financially, donations from individuals or groups are very welcome (please make cheques payable to 'Home-Start South Leicestershire'). We have to raise substantial funds each year to be able to offer our home-visiting and group support to families in the Harborough District.
