Home Start South Liverpool

Wendy and I met with Fiona from Home Start South Liverpool on Thursday.

She works for a charity who support families with children under the age of five in their homes. They work with trained volunteers from the community who work for three hours a week with their matched family, offering support, friendship and practical help.

Fiona wanted to talk to us about the possibility of setting up a project in Kensington and Fairfield, Picton and Wavertree. We were extremely enthusiastic, once they establish whether they can get the funding we will work closely with them to help identify both families in need and volunteers.

In the meantime though we have promised to put Fiona in touch with all sorts of people and organisations in our area so that she can start to build her networks.

Thi is something for us all to really look forward to.
