By volunteering for Home-Start Bristol, you’ll offer a lifeline to a family; helping them to get back on their feet and develop skills to cope with the future.
Home-Start Bristol supports struggling families with at least one child under 5. We recruit and train our volunteers and carefully match them with local families.
Our popular accredited Volunteer Preparation courses are held 3 times a year. Each course runs for 36 hours over 9 weeks, term-time only, and is designed to fit in with the school day; volunteers attend on just one day a week. At the end of our last course, 100% of volunteers said that they would recommend it to a friend.
Home-Start Bristol Volunteer Preparation course carries a Level 2 Accreditation which, when combined with the experience you’ll gain working with us, can act as a wonderful stepping-stone into a new career.
Parents and grandparents have the experience to make great volunteers. We couldn’t carry out this vital work without you, so if you can spare 2-3 hours a week to do something amazing, please contact us today. You really will be changing lives!
