Could you help give local children the best possible start? 

Home-Start Oldham Stockport and Tameside (HOST) offer support and friendship to families with children under five. The families we work with can be affected by any number of difficulties, such as post-natal depression, disability, social isolation or multiple births.

We are currently looking for people to join our dedicated team of volunteers who visit children and parents in their own homes to provide practical help and emotional support. 

Volunteers attend a preparation course for one day a week for ten weeks (day or evening) before being matched to a family. Expenses are paid and ongoing training provided. 

If you have parenting experience and can spare a few hours each week, why not give us a call? You can help make a real difference in a child’s life.

Courses start in January
