Home-Start Chichester & District volunteers – Sarah

‘Being a volunteer for Home-Start has been an important part of my life for several years now. The families I have worked with have all had different problems, but in many ways similar. The biggest gift we as volunteers can give is our time: over the months we spend many hours and really get to know a family, which means we can “drip drip” our help in. We can bring our own experience as parents, common sense and an outside perspective to families, all backed up by the excellent training and support provided by the wonderful Home-Start co-ordinators. It may be a cliche, but I have learnt so much and find the work extremely rewarding – it’s nice to “give something back”! I could go on and on about how great the experience has been!’
