Calling all Hounslow borough residents with parenting experience and a couple of spare hours a week: local families need you!

Home-Start Hounslow is a local charity that offers an outreach service through volunteers giving regular support, friendship and practical help to families who are under stress in their own homes, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown.

Their volunteers are trained to support local families facing a variety of difficulties, including loneliness and isolation, ill health, post-natal depression, disabilities, bereavement, lone-parenting and coping with several pre-school children.

Home-Start volunteers are all ages and from all walks of life, all they need is that you have parenting experience, that you attend their preparation course and you can spare two or three hours a week to visit someone.

Two new preparation courses will be held this year, which will take place in Hounslow:

  • Every Friday, 9.45am – 2.45pm, from 11 May to 20 July 2012
  • Every Tuesday. 9.45am – 2.45pm, from 25 September to 4 December 2012

If you are interested in helping local families in need, either as a home-visiting volunteer or any other capacity, then please contact Margaret O’Connor on 0208 577 9552, or email
