Thinking of Volunteering?

orange section dividing line Volunteering Panel

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

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

Home-Start Havering's home-visiting volunteers come from many different backgrounds and vary in age but all are either parents themselves or have parenting experience and are carefully selected for their friendliness and understanding. 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. Our volunteers offer their time and friendship and accept a parent as they are.

If you can help us we would love to hear from you, please Contact Us. 

Please see below for ways to help us with fundraising.
