Volunteers needed for Home-Start Herefordshire

First published in News

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."

It a pity Mr Rudd , that you do not add further to your comment , it would be much more helpful if you put your side of the discussion so that posters " sitting on the fence " can make an informed decision.
As an aside , I have been a volunteer for a good number of years but whilst I have paid my own expenses , ( mileage etc) I have never had to pay to receive a qualification. I know that there are two sides to every story so Mr Rudd please give your side. Thank you
