About HomeStart Erewash

Our volunteers, who all have an understanding of parenting, are trained and matched to a young family experiencing difficulties. They will visit the family in their home weekly for about 2 hours each week to offer support. This may be emotional or practical and is aimed at getting the family through their difficulties by walking alongside them and working through them together. Support may last for up to a year.

We are looking for friendly and caring volunteers with parenting experience and 2-3 hours a week to spare.

Must have parenting experience or an evidenced understanding or parenting.

Will require criminal record check
