To recruit a p/t Children's Support Worker to support our older Home-Start children who are struggling at home, school or in the community.

Our Work

Our amazing team of Trustees, Volunteer and Staff work together to help local people to a brighter tomorrow by supporting them to engage in their communities, encourage them to share their anxieties and concerns, be a confidential listening ear, and to find the joy in parenting again.

Our Volunteers offer 1-2-1 support to families in their own homes.  We support families at the most crucial time and by helping at the earliest time possible our Volunteers really do help families positively change things for the better. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to offer a one to one support to our older children who are at school when our family support volunteer usually visits.  We know that a number of our children are struggling at school, at home or in the community.  We'd like to develop this new post to offer direct support to children - to be a confidential listening ear, to support them to attend a group, or to work with them to increase their confidence so they can find their own voice.   We hope our supports will help our Home-Start children to enjoy school. build friendships and feel better connected to those around them.

Any successful funding will go towards securing a part-time Children's Support Worker (16 hours per week) and to pay for recreational activities ie swimming, bowling, or support to join a group such as Brownies or Cubs.
