Home-Start Malta is looking for new volunteers to join its current team. They will be supporting families in need of assistance who have at least one child under the age of 5.

Home-Start offers parent-to-parent support to parents who, for various reasons may find themselves facing a difficult situation. Families that apply for this service are provided with support in their own homes. These may include illness, multiple births, mental and/or physical disability, isolation and a need for assistance in parenting skills.
 
Home-Start volunteers build a friendly and supportive relationship with parents. They give parents more opportunity to spend more quality time with their children since during stressful times, this could be lacking.

They also offer practical support such as accompanying parents for medical appointments, helping parents organise better their household chores such as cooking, cleaning and budgeting skills amongst others.

To become a Home-Start volunteer, the main pre-requisite is that of being a parent or having direct parenting experience. All volunteers attend an intensive training programme before being matched with families.

Volunteers are also given ongoing professional support throughout from the Home-Start Organiser. Home-Start Malta is supported by Aġenzija Appoġġ, and sponsored by HSBC Malta Foundation and Vodafone Malta Foundation.

Those interested in joining the Home-Start team of volunteers, may call for more information on 2167 8043, 2398 5111 or on 9901 8398; send an email on home.start@maltanet.net, or apply online on www.appogg.gov.mt by not later than Thursday 28th February 2013.
