We provide a vital lifeline for local families with children under five. At the heart of our local charity are the parent volunteers who give their time to help other parents who are struggling to cope. They support them to manage their own issues as well as helping their pre-school children to be ready for nursery and school. At the moment, we are particularly looking for parents from Richmond and Hounslow Boroughs. Could you help us by telling your parents about the free volunteer training course available to them?
Last year we helped 346 vulnerable families and 537 children in the boroughs of Richmond, Hounslow and Kingston; most being referred by Health Visitors and other professionals. Our trained volunteers support parents with difficulties such as mental health, family breakdown, domestic abuse, bereavement, disability or a combination of factors that can affect their children’s welfare. Please call us if you would like any more information on 020 8487 8500 or visit www.homestart-rkh.org.uk .
