On this page, you will find out more about the role of being a Home-Start volunteer and hear from some of our current volunteers on why they give their time to us and why they want to support local parents and their children. 

Home-Start is one of Greater Manchester’s leading family support charities.
For over 21 years, local Home-Start volunteers have been offering emotional and practical support to families.
Why? Because parenting can be hard for so many reasons. From dealing with poverty and isolation to poor mental health and relationship breakdowns. All these issues can affect a parent’s ability to cope.

And this is where Home-Start steps in.

Our volunteers who live in our local communities offer a mixture of practical and emotional, non-judgemental support, for however long a family needs them. More than anything, our volunteers are there as a regular, friendly face, an extra pair of hands and a shoulder to cry on. Could this be you? 

Could you be the person that gifts two hours of your time each week to help change a family’s future? 

Don’t take our word for it, these are the stories of three of our volunteers on why they volunteer for Home-Start.
