Due to our success with securing additional funding from The Big Lottery Fund we are looking to welcome new volunteers to support our projects. Over the coming months we will have roles available for home-visiting volunteers and group support volunteers.

 

We are looking to further develop our group work within the communities of Flintshire and we are excited to be developing new opportunities for volunteers.

We held our first  group volunteer preparation day on Thursday 7th February 2019, this was a shorter course aimed at volunteers who are interested in getting involved in our new and existing groups rather than completing the full 6 week course.

 

More group volunteer preparation training is being scheduled so get in touch to discuss further and secure your place.

 

We now have group sessions running across Flintshire that need your support. We have a range of groups within primary schools, stay and play sessions, 'Play, chat & craft' and Twins group. More are being developed so join us in supporting families across Flintshire.

 

Contact us for more information if you would like to be involved in these new and exciting projects.

The course aims to be informal and relaxed, and we hope you will enjoy your time on the course. You can partake in the course without completing any written work – most of the course involves informal discussion. All 12 sessions must be completed; however, we are flexible. You can switch between the day and evening session should you need to. For those seeking a qualification, there is the option for volunteers to gain 3 credits at Level 2 (Open College Network).

 

 

Topics covered on the course will include the role of a Home-Start volunteer, safeguarding children and confidentiality.

 

 

     Spaces on the course are limited – please contact the office to reserve your place.

 

If you are interested in volunteering for Home-Start Flintshire and supporting a family in the local community please contact us or drop into the office for an informal chat.

During November 2017 we held a Volunteer Celebration Evening.  The evening involved a wonderful quiz with very competitive teams and a buffet.  We also presented our Volunteers with Certificates of Service with a few being an amazing 10 years.  We are so grateful for all the support we have from our volunteers. Each and everyone do an amazing job.

Children In Need Bake Off

November 2017 

 

 

In November the team took part in the Children In Need Bake Off. Each member of staff baked a cake then we asked all the staff from the other organisations in the building to come and try them all. They then had to vote for their favourite. Our Senior Scheme Organiser Sharon Windsor won, but most importantly we raised £102.46. Thank you everyone that supported us, not that anyone needed an excuse to eat cake!
