To provide friendship, emotional support and practical help to families experiencing difficulties who have at least one child under five years of age.Why the community needs us
volunteering opportunities. Saving to the local authority by keeping families together and preventing family breakdown.Our impact on the community
Families feel supported, less stressed and more able to parent their children. Volunteers can model play opportunities for children and enable parents to feel more confident and self-assured. Parents are enabled and empowered to take control of their own lives which means less social worker and health visitor intervention.
volunteers, who are parents themselves, needed to support young families with at least one child under five who are experiencing difficulties. Volunteer visit families in their own homes for two - three hours each week to provide emotional support and practical help with children. Volunteers are required to do a 40 hour preparation course which runs over ten weeks.
