How are families referred?
We accept referrals from any childcare organisation, but mainly families are referred by their Health Visitor or Social Worker, however families can refer themselves to the scheme.
For how long does a volunteer visit?
It may be for just a few weeks, a few months or even years- depending on your needs and what our volunteers are able to offer. We will always discuss any changes with families first.
