CALLS are being made for volunteers to help change the lives of Dorset families.
Home Start West Dorset is a local charity providing friendship, advice and practical support to families who live in the West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland area.
More people are needed to volunteer to visit homes in the area, The home-visiting volunteers support parents who have at least one child under five to increase the confidence and independence of the family.
Home-Start aims to support young children and their families who manage with limited public transport, significant degrees of isolation and other problems that this area can bring.
Volunteers need to be parents or have parenting experience, attend a volunteer preparation course and be willing to spare about two or three hours a week to support a family in need.
The recognised training course involves 40 hours of training delivered over 10 weeks, excluding school holidays.
For further information on the next course or to volunteer call 01305 265072 or email office @homestartwestdorset.co.uk
