Coventry volunteer visiting service

Location: West Midlands
Time commitment: To be discussed

In an exciting partnership with Coventry City Council, we are providing one-to-one support for families who are going through challenging times and need help to find a positive way forward.

Volunteers visit the family once a week for six months, offering emotional support and a practical hand getting started with tasks. They help families in many ways; it might be support to find a family routine that works for them, or going with a parent the first time they attend a children’s centre. It can be assisting with filling in forms or making a family budget.

Volunteers always help parents to engage with the Social Care teams that are supporting the family. In return, volunteers are supported by project staff and have regular supervision sessions as well as attending practice development groups with peers. Full training will be given. 

If you are interested in volunteering for this project, please email coventryadmin@familylives.org.uk or call 07885 361697 for an application pack and information on upcoming training courses.
