Home-Start Richmondshire

Volunteer Opportunities

Home Start Richmondshire is part of Home Start UK, the largest family support charity in the UK with over 268 schemes nationally and within the Armed Forces Community abroad. In 2017 over 59,000 children were supported by over 16,000 volunteers.
Home Start Richmonshire has been established since April 2010 and is managed by a board of Trustees and run by a team of 4 locally.

We believe that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play a key role in giving their children a good start in Life and helping them achieve their full potential. We believe that the best possible start in Life for a child begins at home with their family, and we want to give parents the support they need to do this.
We support families with a child under the age of 7, who are struggling to cope. Volunteers visit families at home each week, supporting parents in situations as diverse as isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness, disability or who are just finding parenting a real struggle. Our volunteers provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support according to the families needs and help them to build confidence and the ability to cope.
