Volunteers sought to aid struggling local families

Family illustration for Home StartHome-Start Lambeth is recruiting now for its next training course for volunteers who want to help support struggling families with young children.

The charity supports vulnerable and often isolated families with children under five.

It was set up in 1998 by a group of local people who wanted to see a Home-Start service established for families. The course, starting in June, will build on the volunteers’ parenting and grandparenting experience to help them give practical and emotional support.

Volunteers commit to support a family for two to three hours a week for at least a year.

This could include listening to the parent or helping to take the children to the park.

If you are interested in helping a family – and in developing your skills – you can apply now to secure your place on the course.
