PEOPLE who are willing to give up their time to help families who are experiencing difficulties are being invited to attend a 10 week course.
Home-Start Herefordshire has a team of volunteers who help and support other parents who are finding life tough bringing up their family.
The course will take place at the charity's Rotherwas base in Thorn Business Park every Wednesday from 9.30am to 2.30pm, starting on January 22. It is free, with all travel expenses paid, but a £30 fee is required for anyone who wants to undertake an accredited course.
"Our scheme manager and organisers are fully qualified and experienced to deliver this valuable course, the purpose of which is to explain the ethos of the charity and help the new volunteers obtain an understanding of the different needs the families may require," said Home-Start Herefordshire spokesman Alison Jones.
"Whilst offering help to families, our volunteers find they get a tremendous sense of satisfaction and enjoy the time they spend together, often making lasting friendships."
