If you have some free time after half-term, and you are a parent or grandparent, you could help other families with pre-school children. Local charity Home-Start is offering a free course to train you to be a home-visiting volunteer, supporting families with difficulties such as post-natal illness, bereavement or disability. The course will run in Hounslow 9.30am-2.30pm, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 27 Feb to 21 March. After the course, you would visit a family for 2-3 hours a week. For more information, please contact Angie Ahmed 020 8487 8500.
