Volunteer with Home-Start Leeds

Volunteer with Home-Start Leeds

Gain confidence; learn new skills supporting families across Leeds

Home-Start Leeds is a family support charity, supporting families In Leeds for over 30 years.  In 2016-17 145 volunteers supported 198 families.

Our volunteers visit families in their homes, support them with difficulties they are facing such as isolation, mental health or substance misuse.  In addition there may be children with additional needs, multiple births or be part of a blended family.

Our volunteers are there to offer emotional and practical support in a restorative way working ‘with’ a family.    Volunteers are someone to talk to and who offer support and options when needed.  Practical support might include supporting a family to access a children centre, going to the park, encouraging play or helping after school.  Our volunteers support families once a week for approximately 3 hours a week for as long as the family needs support – typically a year to 18 months.  Volunteering with Home-Start Leeds is flexible and can take place in the daytime, evening or weekend.

All our volunteers attend a 45 hours preparation. We offer preparation courses in the daytime during school hours or in the evening.  Volunteers are supported by one of our highly trained co-ordinators throughout their time volunteering with us.  Co-ordinators offer on-going support to volunteers making sure they receive all the help they need when supporting a family.

Our volunteers are parents or have parenting experience and understand the struggles of having a family.  We offer our own on-going free programme of learning opportunities, the chance to undertake Level 1/2/3 qualifications when funding is available and work experience opportunities.

A Volunteer’s Story

Michelle has been a Home-Start volunteer for two years and has supported a few families in that time.  She is currently on our work experience programme for 6 months, shadowing our co-ordinator team and learning about the work that we do.  Michelle says “I would encourage anyone to volunteer with Home-Start it is so rewarding, they are like one big family, everyone helps with any problems or difficulties you may have”.   Volunteering with Home-Start is a wonderful opportunity and makes a big difference to families’ lives”   During her volunteering Michelle has successfully completed an Level 4 qualification on “Working with Parents”

For many volunteers, their journey with Home-Start is the first step to building their confidence and self- esteem, and can be that first step into further training or paid work.
