Supporting Children's Centres in North West Leicestershire
Home-Start North West Leicestershire was commissioned by the North West Leicestershire Locality Partnership Group until March 31st 2015 to recruit, select, train and support a group of volunteers to work within the local Children's Centres. These volunteers had undergone all of the normal checks necessary to become a Home-Start volunteer and had ongoing support from a Home-Start Organiser. The volunteers were then placed with a variety of groups and activities that operate in the eight Children's Centres within the North West Leicestershire District Council area while continuing to be supported by the Home-Start Organiser.
Although Home-Start will continue to work closely with the Children’s Centres, the County Council has decided that we will no longer be involved in this work. We expect that many of the activities and groups will continue.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in a Children Centre we understand that Leicestershire County Council, who operate the Children’s Centres, are now taking this scheme in house so we would suggest that you contact them direct.
Home-Start North West Leicestershire would like to thank all of the volunteers who worked so hard to make this part of our work a success and we are sorry that we are now unable to offer you our ongoing support for your work in the Children’s Centres.
