Home-Start Hampshire is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with children age 0-11 years. Family Support Volunteers offer regular support and help to families under stress either in their own homes or at family groups, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown. Because childhood can’t wait.

In addition to Family Support Volunteers, Home-Start Hampshire also relies on the support of our Community Team, a group of volunteers committed to raising awareness of Home-Start Hampshire throughout the communities we serve, raise much needed funds and help to build and strengthen community relations.

  • Arrange, attend, and give talks to local groups about Home-Start Hampshire, sharing information about the work we do and how they can get involved with supporting us (we have standard presentation materials for you to use and usually buddy you with a longer-standing volunteer)

Fundraising

  • Attend pre-arranged events on behalf of Home-Start Hampshire, e.g., recruitment fairs, summer fetes, Christmas fairs, sporting challenges as a competitor or moral support cheerleader!
  • Join a local team to support the organisation of an event(s) to raise funds for Home-Start Hampshire
  • Support the Business Development team to identify business, or community groups to provide funds, gifts in-kind and those open to sponsorship opportunities

Relationship Building

  • Identify PR opportunities and build relationships accordingly
