Volunteers needed!

Can you spare 2-4 hours a week to support a local family and make a difference that could last a lifetime?

Home-Start Wandsworth is looking for people to join their network of trained volunteers. Volunteers support families with young children in Wandsworth dealing with a variety of difficulties including; post-natal depression, isolation, physical and mental health problems, bereavement or financial worries.

Our volunteers work alongside families to give compassionate, non-judgemental, confidential support, tailored to each family. They help families regain their confidence and empower them to build connections with other support services and the wider community to reduce isolation.

Who can volunteer?

If you have parental or any other experience with young children and can spare 2-4 hours every week to visit a family in their home, then we would love to hear from you. You don’t need qualifications – all you need is a willingness to help, empathy enthusiasm, reliability – and a little time.

Applications are now open for our next volunteer training programme. The course will start on Thursday 18 April and will run every Thursday from 9:30am – 2:30pm for 8 weeks (with a break for half-term.)
