There are several ways that you can help Home-Start North Somerset in a voluntary capacity:
- by supporting a family as a home-visiting volunteer
- by becoming a trustee
- by helping us with fundraising
If you would like to become a home visiting volunteer you must be a parent yourself, be free to support a family for a minimum of 2 hours once a week and be able to volunteer for up to a year. You should have a non-judgemental attitude and understand the pressures of bringing up a family.
In return we offer a free comprehensive initial training package and on going support and further training from your local Home-Start team. If you would like to apply to be a home visiting volunteer please contact us for an initial discussion on 01934 419396 or contact us. All applicants will be subject to an enhanced DBS (police) check.

The Home-Start North Somerset Management Committee – board of Trustees is made up of local people from a wide range of backgrounds. The main requirements of a trustee are a real interest in the family support work we undertake and a willingness to be involved and active in the running of the charity and attending committee meetings. The committee ensures correct governance and is responsible for the financial security of the organisation.
If you would like more information about being a trustee or a fundraising volunteer (see next page) we would love to hear from you, please Contact Us.
