Home-Start Daventry and South Northants


Giving Children the Best Start in Life



There are several ways that you can help Home-Start Daventry and South Northants in a voluntary capacity:

  • by supporting a family as a home-visiting volunteer
  • by joining the Board of Trustees
  • by helping with our family activities such as Craft Mornings and outings

Home-Start Daventry and South Northants’ home-visiting volunteers come from many different backgrounds and vary in age but all are either parents themselves or have parenting experience and are carefully selected for their friendliness and understanding. All volunteers attend a 40 hour preparation course, undergo an enhanced DBS check and provide two references before being matched with a family. They then take their own individual skills and experience to the families they visit. Our volunteers offer their time and commitment and are non-judgemental.

Home-Start Daventry and South Northants’  Board of Trustees is made up of local people from a wide range of backgrounds such as social care, law, HR and business. The main requirements of a trustee are a real interest in the work we undertake and a willingness to be actively involved in the running of the charity. The  Board of Trustees is responsible for the financial security of the organisation and ensures its strong governance.
