Volunteer with us

There are a variety of volunteer positions open; community focused fundraising, home-visiting, playgroup support and some admin roles.

The training is free and will take place in Newton Abbot and is for those people wanting to get involved. We run a weekly group for families with young children and also support families in their own homes, for families who are struggling with stress and difficulties of raising families within the area of Teignbridge

From only a couple of hours a week of your time, you could help support a family through a difficult time. Our volunteers are the key to our service and as a volunteer you would be non-judgemental, friendly and caring, with an understanding of the pressures of parenting.

All our volunteers are given an extensive preparation course (covering subjects such as safe-guarding, domestic abuse, confidentiality, debt resolution), providing them with solid, transferable skills.
