Come and join Home-Start Bradford District, together we make a great team!

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.
