Volunteer Mentors Needed

Volunteer Mentors Needed

Do you have experience caring for young children? You may have the skills we need!

Home-Start has a dedicated team of Volunteer Mentors who support hundreds of families across Hertfordshire.  They provide both emotional and practical support.  It may be helping a parent with a disability take their child to the park, helping a family access local community groups or assisting with healthy eating, budgeting or parenting skills.

Trained and skilled volunteer mentors are matched with families and visit them at home, every week for 2-3 hours. They help parents to build their confidence and find ways to manage the challenges they face. This could be by helping them get out, meeting people and building networks, or maybe helping them with setting boundaries and managing difficult behavior.

We offer free e-learning training with 2 in-person sessions to provide you with all the skills and information you will need to support families.
