Be a Family Support Volunteer!

We are opening our doors to train new volunteers, which starts on 21st June. There are a variety of volunteer positions open; community focused fundraising, home-visiting, playgroup support and some admin roles.

The training is free and will take place in Newton Abbot and is for those people wanting to get involved. We run a weekly group for families with young children and also support families in their own homes, for families who are struggling with stress and difficulties of raising families within the area of Teignbridge

If this is of interest to you please take a look at our full schedule Click here or contact us


From only a couple of hours a week of your time, you could help support a family through a difficult time. Our volunteers are the key to our service and as a volunteer you would be non-judgemental, friendly and caring, with an understanding of the pressures of parenting.

All our volunteers are given an extensive preparation course (covering subjects such as safe-guarding, domestic abuse, confidentiality, debt resolution), providing them with solid, transferable skills.

If you are interested you can call Denise on 01626 353700.

Other ways of helping

If you can't commit to visiting a family regularly but still want to help out, we are always looking for volunteers to help out at our group, join our fundraising committee or contribute a cake/help out with events. If you are interested, please contact the office.
