Home-Visiting Volunteer

Home-Start Kirklees is a volunteer led family support charity, supporting parents with young children across Kirklees.  Volunteers visit their families weekly for 2-3 hours and offer practical help, emotional support and a listening ear.  Volunteers are fully trained and supported by Co-ordinators whilst they are matched to families.  We are unique in that we support families for as long as support is needed and it is making a difference.  We ask that volunteers commit to the role for a minimum 12 months to allow relationships with families to be built on trust and rapport.  Established in 1999, Home-Start Kirklees is affiliated to Home-Start UK.

  • About the Volunteer Role
    Home-visiting volunteers are trained and supported to home-visit weekly, families with small children, who need practical help, a listening ear with emotional support and in some cases help to access local community provision. Each volunteer is carefully matched to their family to ensure that we avoid long distances expected to travel, they are not known within their own local community and that the volunteer's preferences are considered to enable a rapport to be built with the parent in order to achieve a positive outcome. Volunteers receive regular supervision from their co-ordinator and a training programme is offered throughout the year.
