Volunteer today to support parents and carers

The charity Family Action is looking for volunteers to support and guide parents and carers with issues such as parenting, emotional wellbeing, benefits, housing, education, disabilities and additional needs.

If you can spare a few hours a month and would like to share your skills and experience, support vulnerable parents and carers, and gain volunteering experience from the comfort of your own home, please get in touch to find out how you can make a difference to families.

They're currently recruiting for people to carry out one or more of the following roles:

  • Helpline Volunteers provide initial support and information by phone / email
  • Befriender Volunteers offer more intensive support to parents/carers through weekly contact by phone / email
  • Expert Volunteers answer email enquiries in areas that they have expertise in (eg health, mental health, housing, immigration, family law or benefits)

They particularly welcome applications from people aged 50+. Full training and support will be given.
