Summary

If you are a parent, grandparent or carer and can spare 2-3 hours per week to support a local family then get in touch.

Detailed description

Can you help local families with young children?


Home-Start Royston, Buntingford & South Cambridgeshire offers a Home Visiting service for local families, where a fully trained volunteer is matched with the family and visits them in their home for a couple of hours each week. The volunteer provides practical and emotional support to help the family work through challenges they are facing, such as:


  • Helping them to get out and about, to visit groups or meet people
  • Accompanying them to medical appointments, helping to occupy the children whilst the parent is at their appointment
  • Signpost the family to other support services, help with paperwork and attend meetings with them if necessary
  • Provide strategies and support to assist parents with issues such as routines, healthy eating or managing challenging behaviours


For more information about our services and volunteering opportunities please visit our website.


OUR NEXT VOLUNTEER PREPARATION COURSE STARTS IN APRIL 2024.
