Home Start Volunteers


Home-Start Bristol is a local charity that supports families in need who have at least one child under the age of five. Its success depends on constantly recruiting and training new volunteers. The next training course begins in January at Windmill Hill City Farm.


Volunteering can be a very fulfilling experience. Home-Start volunteers report a significant impact on their life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects.


It is also very rewarding to see families who have been struggling develop strategies to cope with difficult situations. The organisers hope that this opportunity may be of interest to some of the parents at Hillcrest.
