Home-Start East Lothian work with trained volunteers to support local families who have at least one child under the age of 5, who may for many different reasons be experiencing a challenging time.
Volunteers visit families once a week a week for 2 -3 hours and can give emotional as well as practical support.
We pride ourselves in our volunteer training and support, some of our volunteers stay for many years.
Home-Start East Lothian pays all out of pocket expenses to volunteers as well as ensuring the role fits around the volunteer’s own commitments. Some volunteers find that the experience they gain is life changing.
