Uniting Victoria and Tasmania - Volunteer Hub


Home Start

Home Start

Home-Start is a voluntary home visiting service that offers practical support and mentoring to families with children under the age of five. Trained volunteers are linked to families on a one-to-one basis to provide support.

All Home-Start volunteers offer their time on a voluntary basis; most are parents or grandparents themselves. They assist by giving low key support and fostering community connection on a short or long term basis. Home-Start is an evidence-based program licensed internationally.

 


Uniting is a child safe organisation and is committed in everyday practice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children, at all times. As a ‘child safe’ organisation, volunteering with Uniting is subject to a satisfactory national (and international where relevant) police check and Working With Children Check (in Victoria) and/or Working With Vulnerable People Check (in Tasmania) prior to commencement in any service or undertaking.
