Get Involved


If you want to support local families in your area there are lots of ways you can get involved. From becoming a local volunteer, to organising a fundraising event. 

If you want to help raise money for Family Lives, there are all sorts of things you can do. From running a marathon, organising a bake sale to a sponsored skydive. Find out more about ways to support us.


Every year, we support families to work through issues such as poverty, behavioural problems, health issues, problems with services and schools, relationship issues, communication breakdowns and countless other issues. We could not support these families without the dedication, commitment and passion of over 200 volunteers.

“It’s difficult to put into words how much volunteering and then working for Family Lives helped me – it was pivotal in getting me to where I am today, what with all the training and encouragement I received.”

Volunteers are vital to Family Lives and we have a wide range of opportunities available in many different areas of the country. Find out more about the different types of volunteer roles and where these are available.

Hampshire needs you!

Opportunities include supporting families experiencing multiple difficulties, attending parenting courses and ongoing support from a home visiting volunteer. Using your skills you can make a difference for families helping them feel more confident, listened to and supported. You will be working alongside other professionals locally as part of a team of support to the family. 

We provide a five day training programme, regular group and one to one supervision and on-going skills development and training.
