TEN new volunteers have completed their training with the Swaffham and District Home-Start Scheme
After taking part in a 10 week training course, the new volunteers will join the expanding Home-Start volunteer team to offer support, friendship and practical assistance to families with at least one child under five who are experiencing difficulties, such as isolation and loneliness or family management skills.
The Swaffham and District Home Start Scheme cover more than 50 parishes around Swaffham, as well as areas around Dereham, Swanton Morley and Fakenham.
Volunteers are parents themselves who have some time to spare and can give a commitment to complete the training course and afterwards visit designated families in their homes on a regular basis.
