A FAMILY support charity has launched a new campaign to find new volunteers.

Home Start Portsmouth, a family support charity, is seeking new support workers.

All volunteers receive free accredited training and ongoing support and supervision.

Volunteers require no special qualifications, just an understanding of how hard it can be as a parent when children are small.

Jo Toms, scheme manager, said: ‘Home Start Portsmouth volunteers change the lives of local families.

‘Our volunteers tell us the experience of supporting families is incredibly rewarding – and by donating just a few hours a week of their time, we know volunteers really make a difference.’

On average, volunteers donate two to three hours a week.
