Home-Start Flintshire - enabling volunteers to support families in Flintshire since 1995

 

Home-Start Flintshire is a voluntary organisation supporting families with at least one child under the age of 11.  Volunteers are recruited, trained and supported to visit families for 2-3 hours per week and to provide a listening ear and an extra pair of hands.   Home-Start's support has been proven to reduce feelings of isolation and to improve emotional well-being and coping skills within the families it supports.

We would love to speak to you about the work of Home-Start.  Every parent needs a friend, and the support of Home-Start volunteers makes an incredible difference to the lives of children and families.

Hi Fellow Volunteers - just wanted  to let you know what a great night 3 of us had at the Beaufort Park Hotel, New Brighton before Christmas. I invited all of our prep group along but typically not all of us could attend - eventually there were three of us namely Margaret, Lianne and myself Sue.  It was a very informal evening but the conversation flowed endlessly (just like the wine!) despite us not being together since the end of our prep course last March.

 It was a really good night and I encourage anyone to arrange getting together with their former prep group or other volunteers in general - not only do we have the common commitment of being volunteers but have developed our friendship - we had a lovely time and will definitely continue to remain in touch.

 

   Home-Start Flintshire AGM

Our AGM, held on 13th November 2015, was a great success and we would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the meeting, including Councillor Ray Hughes, Chair of Flintshire County Council, who opened the meeting, Councillor David Mackie and David Hanson MP.  We would also like to thank Sandie Mewies who was our guest speaker.  

We carried out a consultation as part of the AGM and we will publish the results of this in the New Year.
