Home Visitor for Home-Start Uttlesford

Each volunteer is carefully matched with a family. They visit the family in the family's own home once a week for 2 hours. How the volunteer helps a family is discussed with the family, the co-ordinator and the volunteer at the start of the placement. Some families need emotional support, someone to talk to. Others may need practical support; taking the children to the park, finding out about local services or playing with the children to give Mum a break.

Volunteers are part of a team that offers 90 families support over the year in the Uttlesford district.

Skills

Good communication skills & empathy.
