Who are our Volunteers?

Our team of volunteers are all local people who have completed a 10 week Preparation Course with the scheme and can offer 2-3 hours a week to support a local family. Our volunteers have an understanding of parenting issues and know how hard it can be and are able to provide sensitive support, encouragement and friendship at a difficult time in a family's life.
