Summary

In some situations, parents can become overloaded and things can become too much for a while. In these situations a Home-Start volunteer can offer support.

Detailed description

Would you like to mean something to someone else? Make a difference in someone's life?


Then read on.

In some situations, parents can become overloaded and things can become too much for a while. All kinds of circumstances (eg divorce, overload or a limited network) can cause tension in a family, which makes parenting extra difficult. In these situations a Home-Start volunteer can offer support, provide a sympathetic ear or practical help.


Do you have a few hours a week to spare? Are you a good listener? Would you like to support a family temporarily with parenting assistance for 2-4 hours a week?

Then we are looking for you!


Dutch is not a requirement, English is useful. Other languages are very welcome! The families that we support also have many different backgrounds.


We offer:

  • rewarding volunteer work
  • preparatory training
  • evaluation meeting & workshops with other volunteers
  • personal guidance by a coordinator

You are welcome to contact us if you are interested or if you would like to receive more information.

About Home-Start Utrecht

Home-Start supports families. The questions of the parents are central. Often a listening ear is asked, practical help or thinking along in the upbringing. The aim is to increase the self-confidence of parents, so that they can continue on their own when the volunteer leaves after a few months. The volunteer visits a family every week on the basis of equality and trust. The parent has plenty of room for personal input and finds solutions together with the volunteer. We are looking for people who want to use their (life) experience to support another parent.
