Family Support Volunteers

Family support

Family support volunteers offer essential practical and emotional support to help families or young people going through challenging times.

Each family or young person needs something different, but some of the things volunteers are trained to do, include:

  • Support confidence and self-sufficiency in parents or young people.
  • Help families develop routines and boundaries, implement positive behaviour strategies and quality play opportunities.
  • Support engagement in healthy lifestyle activities.
  • Encourage friendships and positive social relationships.

This is an ideal role for: someone who wants to gain skills within the helping profession and who has the time to support others. We currently need 10 volunteers to fulfil these roles.

Time commitment: 2 hours per week. Long term commitment required.

Locations: Across Kirklees

Training: before taking up this role we expect you to undertake 10 hours of training over 5 sessions, and will provide professional support and supervision throughout


Please note, all roles involving children, young people and adults at risk may be subject to screening and will be directed, and closely monitored by a supervisor, who will support and guide your work.
