Volunteer with us in 2019

Make volunteering to help a local family your New Year's Resolution.

Some families with small children in Edinburgh and Midlothian don't have anyone to confide in. They need someone like you to visit them for 2hrs a week to listen to their worries, read and play with their kids and help the family to be more resilient.

You don't need experience, we'll train you. It's incredibly satisfying to see a family developing in confidence and it's great experience for your career.

A parent says:  "It’s just nice to have somebody that you know is on your side. It was really good support at a difficult time that helped us as a family get a wee bit stronger when we needed it.'

A volunteer says:  “You are building the family up from the first time you meet them, seeing them grow, so they can stand on their own two feet when you go”.
