Volunteering Week

We want to take this opportunity during National Volunteering Week to say THANK YOU to all our incredible volunteers!

We can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given to parents and children across the borough now and over the years, and for the many other ways that you support us as an organisation. We are delighted to discover from our recent survey that 100% said they would recommend volunteering with us!

In the words of Rob Parkinson, Chief Executive of Home-Start UK:

“You are part of a network of 13,500 volunteers and because of you over 27,000 families and 56,000 children are supported each year.

Your work has never been more urgent and important; we know that a child’s earliest years are irreplaceable. Without a stable, loving and nurturing environment, a very young child will not develop the vital foundations they need. You make an extraordinary difference to the lives of the parents and children you support; thank you.

I also hope that volunteering for Home-Start has made a difference to you too; whether that be gaining new skills, improving your wellbeing or connecting you to your local community. You, along with our families are the motivation and inspiration for the creation of Home-Start and are a vital part of our work.

Thank you for your time, effort and commitment volunteering for Home-Start Wandsworth.”

You’re amazing. Happy Volunteering Week!
