Home Visiting Volunteers

We may be able to provide a home visiting volunteer who will visit you in your home and give you one on one support, help and guidance. They can also help you to integrate into the community by learning about the various services that are available to you in support of young families.

Our volunteers are vetted and carefully matched to each family. Each person we place with a family will engage with them personally for a set time each week. The kind of help needed is agreed with the parent.

Family Groups

We can also provide you with mutual support by introducing you to other families. We arrange sessions where mothers with toddlers can meet and discuss various issues that they may face and share solutions which may help. This is a great way to build relationships with like-minded people, while your circumstances may seem to be unique to you, you may find that within a Family Group you have an opportunity to share ideas and learn from others.
