Home-Start - Volunteering in Merthyr Tydfil

Volunteering in Merthyr Tydfil

As Home-Start RCT and Merthyr Tydfil celebrate another successful year, they would like to say a huge thank you to all their fantastic volunteers who are at the heart of what they do. 

Home-Start offer support within the home and this enables the families to build up a trusting relationship and friendship.  Often when a family asks us for help, it is a volunteer who makes a difference and we recognise that volunteer support is priceless.

Why volunteer?

Our volunteers give their time and support for many reasons:

  • To make a difference to those families who are facing difficulties

  • To give something back to their local community

  • To share their parenting experience / similar experience

Volunteers may also benefit from:

  • Increased self confidence

  • Gaining experience in this area, preparing them to return to work, or preparing for a career change

  • Improved health and general well-being

If you feel you are able to make a difference, then please contact: Home-Start on:
