Home-Start Butser

Ever thought about becoming a volunteer? 

Our team of over 50 volunteers bring hope and happiness to children and parents. Due to increasing need we are seeking new recruits to join our next training course on 30th January 2018.

If you are a parent, or a grandparent, and have 2 to 3 hours a week to spare you could help us change lives for the better. Volunteers complete a 11-week preparation course before being matched with local families in need of support. For information about becoming a volunteer please click here, or call us in the office on 01730 233 755. We would love to hear from you.
