Join Home-Start’s next volunteer course and help make a big difference to a local family

Are you a parent or grandparent who could give a couple of hours a week to help a struggling or vulnerable family in the Slough and Burnham area?

Then sign up for our next volunteer course which starts in February 2014 and join our growing team of volunteers.

You don’t need formal qualifications; what you need most is parenting experience, a non-judgmental attitude, the ability to empathise and an understanding that parenting can be hard for many families.

Our training course runs for two hours a week every Wednesday morning for 11 weeks and attendees are expected to attend every session. We cover topics such as child protection, communication skills, stress factors in family life and the importance of play.

Once new volunteers have completed the course they are ‘matched’ with a family which needs support.

Get in touch with us for more information about the course and help make a big difference to a struggling family. All volunteers are given on-going training and support by our team of Family Support Co-ordinators.
