Home-Start is one of the leading family support charities in the UK.  Home-Start volunteers help families with young children deal with the challenges they face. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.  Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

They will be looking for shop assistants, stock sorters and collection drivers.  Are you able to spare a few hours a week to support  a young family or help with running the shop.
