Home-Start Carmarthenshire

We help families give their children the best start in life.

Volunteering

There are several ways that you can help Home-Start Carmarthenshire in a voluntary capacity:

  • by supporting a family as a home-visiting volunteer
  • by joining the Management Committee
  • by helping us with fundraising

Home-Visiting Volunteers

Home-visiting volunteers come from many different backgrounds and vary in age but all are either parents themselves or have parenting experience. All volunteers attend a preparation course before being matched with a family. They then take their own individual skills and experience to the families they visit.
