Without volunteers, we wouldn't be able to do what we do. They give so much to the families and the organization.
We depend on volunteers':
- Skills, experience, and knowledge
- Generous gift of time
- Willingness to be flexible and do a variety of roles in Home-Start Bradford District.
Volunteers benefit from:
- New skills, experience, and knowledge
- Improved knowledge of local services and local issues
- Raised awareness of the needs of families and communities
- Improved access to paid employment opportunities and a range of education opportunities
- A sense of personal achievement and satisfaction
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
- Access to further training from local professionals
Potential volunteers will be invited in for an interview before starting our 10-session course where they will meet like-minded people and have fun.
Once references and checks (including an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS)) have been taken up a volunteer will visit a family for 3- 4 hours a week.
We ask volunteers to give at least a year to the organisation but most stay longer.
