Charity needs volunteers
5:00pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
VOLUNTEERS are needed to boost the ranks of a charity which supports families at home.
The North Cotswold branch of Home-Start, based in Stow, has supported 22 families and 61 children so far this year but wants to recruit some extra pairs of hands.
Home-visiting volunteers, who have parenting experience, attend a 40-hour preparation course which starts next month before being matched with a family.
Volunteers will then visit the family each week for up to three hours.
Across the UK 16,000 Home-Start volunteers supporte parents in situations including isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness, disability or who are finding parenting a struggle.
For details, call Lesley on 01451 831781 or e-mail email@example.com.
