Volunteering at the heart of Home-Start
At the heart of their work is home-visiting volunteer support.
Home-Start works because their volunteers understand how hard it can be. They work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, confidence and strength they need to nurture their children.
