New Volunteers training

To make sure our volunteers are ready to give the families the best possible support, Home-Start Southwark offers a high-quality preparation training. The course runs once a week over a 7-week period and covers following modules:

1. Introduction to HSS

2. Values and Attitudes, Listening and Communication

3. Meeting the Needs of Children

4. Bump to Babe, Big Hopes, Big Future

5. Safeguarding and protecting children

6. Supporting Parents

7. Confidentiality

+ additional 2 days focused on Domestic Abuse.

“What makes the Volunteer Preparation Course so unique and special is the life experience that each of the volunteers brings. We teach them the essential elements of family support, but they contribute the knowledge, skills, and experience that they’ve gained in their own lives”
