2019 Preparation Course

We are running our next volunteer preparation course.  The course will give you everything you need to support a family here in Reading.  We have numerous families waiting for support.  They are struggling to cope due to illness, disability, bereavement, a lack of understanding of parenting skills, multiple births, isolation and/or crippling social circumstances that are beyond their control.

What the families say I was at the end of my tether. My volunteer and I chatted, and I felt better. I talk when I’m upset, and she really listens and responds. She accepted what I felt was real to me. It was my only lifeline.  Home-Start has helped me progress massively. It has been really holistic and multi-dimensional. Amazing.”.

Why the volunteers volunteer for us “I have just had my first visit with the family I have been linked with. Wow! I didn’t realise how much she would take my breath away.  Such a young mum doing so much.  Made me realise how lucky I was and what an important role it is to be a volunteer” 

The course will start in September 2019 at a venue in Caversham.
