A CHARITY which only months ago was under threat is running free courses for volunteers.

Home-Start Havant, which supports vulnerable families of children under five, has been given a grant from the National Lottery enabling it to run the eight-week course from September. Volunteers visit families in their homes for two hours a week and offer practical and emotional support.

The course takes place at Mill Hill Children’s Centre, Mill Road, Waterlooville. To apply call (023) 9224 1234 or e-mail
