 Become a volunteer!

Our next volunteer training course will be starting soon. We are looking for people with parenting experience to become volunteers with Home-Start North and West Gloucestershire. We cover the areas of Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and the Forest of Dean and are recruiting volunteers to work with families in these areas to provide support and friendship. Volunteers will need to be able to spare a couple of hours each week to work with their families and be able to complete a ten-week training course which will take a couple of hours each week to complete. Our next course will be run online via Zoom and prerecorded tutorials. If this sounds like something you would like to get involved with then please see our Facebook Page or have a look at our website where we have more details.

New Volunteer Preperation Courses start w/c 14th September, for more information please follow the direct link below.
