This year, more than ever, during national VOLUNTEER WEEK we would like to shout a MASSIVE ‘THANK YOU’ to all our fabulous volunteers.

We never fail to be touched by the commitment, dedication and endless enthusiasm Home-Start’s wonderful volunteers offer to our families, scheme and staff.

During these unprecedented times, we have all been affected by health worries, lockdown, social distancing and the uncertainty of what lies ahead. Yet undaunted, our volunteers valiantly and selflessly continue to offer weekly support to each and everyone of our families. Whilst support is currently delivered via the phone it continues to be a lifeline to so many: a ‘smiley’ voice, an empathetic ear, a pick-me-up on a bad day, a means to succeed and procure, a mentor, a reliable and trustworthy friend. We never cease to be amazed by the willingness of our volunteers, who despite the additional challenges we are all facing, continue to prioritise the needs of others, for the wellbeing and benefit of future generations.

Home-Start Northampton volunteers, you are inspirational, life enhancers and quite simply make the world a better place – thank you, thank you, thank you!
