Today is the start of our Chorley Prep Course. We’ve 10 people attending, each of whom have been through initial enquiry stages giving them the opportunity to find out a little about Home-Start and for us to get to know them, before embarking on our 6 week course which prepares each person for becoming a volunteer.Read More
A number of families came along and had a great time with Home-Start during half term. We all started with a light breakfast whilst we got to know each other. Then the children did some fantastic crafts – check out the money boxes – there is a lot of talent around!
On Friday 13th October, 9 new Home-Start Volunteers successfully completed the Home-Start Volunteers 6 Session Preparation Course which they had been attending at Park Childrens Centre Skelmersdale. The Volunteers all received a Certificate presented by Jeannie Stirling (Chair of Home-Start Central Lancashire) and had a celebration buffet lunch on the last session of the course. These Volunteers will soon be linked up with families in need of a helping hand or helping in one of Home-Starts Family Groups. Read More
We celebrated our 21st Birthday with over 70 people attending our AGM which was held in September at Chorley Town Hall. Home-Start staff gave presentations of the work and projects overtaken over the last year and many were surprised at how much Home-Start Central Lancashire has once more achieved!
