Taking The Lead
Action For Children’s South Worcestershire Starting Well service offers their volunteers the unique experience of co-delivering their services. Rather than just supporting the service, volunteers are encouraged to take the lead in delivering community baby and toddler groups, directly supporting families at Family Hubs, and are trained to co-facilitate parenting groups. This experience has proved invaluable to local people who want to really make a difference in their local area. Full training is provided for all available roles.
