Home-Start Lambeth works with parents of young children giving practical and emotional support to manage and resolve problems. Volunteers work on a one-to-one basis with a family each week for 2 to 3 hours. They use their own parenting and grand-parenting experiences to help the family move forwards.
Volunteers are given a free high-quality preparation course to develop their skills and prepare them for the things they may encounter with their family. They make new friends, obtain good experience to add to their CV and have a lot of fun too.
Training courses run regularly. The next course will start 17 May and run for 6 weeks on Thursdays between 9.30am-2.30pm (excluding half term).
