Eleven volunteers finished their preparation course this week and are ready to start supporting local children and families

Volunteers come in for training once a week for eight weeks to prepare them to support families.

One of the new volunteers said:

‘The course was so interesting and I really liked meeting the speakers who came in to talk to us, this gave me a good idea of the kind of services that are local such as Playskills who support families will children with additional needs. The course has made me think about as a parent you have a lot of skills you take for granted’.

The new volunteers will be matched with local families shortly and we provide lots of opportunities through out the year. Volunteers have regular supervision and opportunities to meet up for support.

This means our trained volunteers have increased by 73% since September , a big thank you to our hard co-ordinators !!!!

Our next volunteer preparation starts on Thursday 13th September. For more information please contact the office on 01923 248010 or enquiries@home-startwatford.org.uk
