Get Involved

Opportunity 1:
We currently need  home visiting volunteers to support local families who are not coping as well as they would like. If you have parenting experience and can spare 2 hours per week please get in touch.

Opportunity 2:
We are actively seeking volunteers to join a newly established fundraising committee. We need enthusiastic local people to contribute ideas, organise and attend fundraising events throughout the year.

Opportunity 3:
Can you spare a few hours per month to put up posters/leaflet drop within the South Derbyshire area?
This is really important to our scheme to help promote our service and recruit more much-needed volunteers.

Opportunity 4:
Our scheme is part funded by South Derbyshire District Council. However we need to raise more funds throughout the year in order to meet our outgoings.
If you are unable to spare any free time, then perhaps a small contribution maybe suitable:

  • £90 pays for a volunteer expenses for 1 year
  • £104 pays for a family to receive support each month (£26.00 per week)
  • £350 pays for 1 volunteer to attend our training course
  • £300.00 pays for 1 family social activity at half term

Do you work for an organisation/company that could donate raffle prizes to help us raise funds? Perhaps your company could sponsor a volunteer’s expenses and/or training for a year?

If you are interested in any of the above we would love to hear from you.
