As I am sure you are aware, Home-Start West Berkshire supports families with young children with difficulties such as isolation, poverty, mental health and physical illness. We can only continue to do this work through the amazing support of our volunteers. Home-Start West Berkshire has a growing list of families waiting for support. Due to the level of demand we are running an additional training course to recruit more volunteers to meet the need. Our volunteers, parents themselves, become a trusted friend and mentor to the family, offer support, guidance and practical assistance to parents experiencing hardship. We are looking for volunteers who can spare 3 hours a week and who are organized, calm and caring. The next training course runs from Monday 17th June for 6 consecutive Mondays from 9.30-14.30pm. If you are interested or would you like to discuss this further please contact us now on 01635 760310 or email More information on our charity and becoming a volunteer can be found on our website:
