Do you want to volunteer and really make a difference?

There are families in Midlothian and Edinburgh with small children and no help.  They would love you to visit them once a week for two hours. You’d be matched with one family and you would provide emotional and practical support.  Most of the families just need another adult to talk to, to share their worries and get some encouragement to help them feel more confident. The children need you to make their lives more fun by sharing books and playing with them.

Our next four day training is free, on Saturdays, 10.30-3.30, 31 Aug, 7th Sept, 14th Sept, 21st Sept. In Dalkeith.

You don’t need any experience or to be a parent.  You just need to be over 18, positive, non-judgemental and willing to listen.  We’ll provide full training, expenses and ongoing support for you.

Our volunteers tell us they find it really rewarding because they learn a lot and its great experience for their careers.
