“I feel we are very fortunate living in Ash as there are many opportunities for people to get involved, make friends, learn new skills and be a part of the community we live in.
I hope you find something that interests you.”
Pauline Baxter, a local Ash volunteer
Home-Start Guildford is a charity that has supported families throughout the borough of Guildford for over 15 years.
The families we support will have at least one child under the age of five, and are usually referred by health visitors.
Volunteers who have parenting experience themselves are trained to visit and support these families. The families need support for a variety of reasons such as isolation, separation, depression, disability, and twins/triplets.
Last year Home-Start Guildford supported 150 families (320 children), and are supporting about 50 families at any one time, hence the demand for volunteers.
We are very keen to recruit volunteers from the Ash area as it has a large number of referrals.
