supporting families & local communities in Calderdale


And so the campaign comes to an end. What a buzz!! We have recruited 36 new volunteers, all attending our local preparation courses as we speak. A massive thank you to all our supporters who have helped spread the word, and to our 36 recruitees! We are ALWAYS looking for new volunteers, so it's not too late - you can sign up!

UP-DATE!! We have 2 days left, and we have recruited 32 fabulous volunteers! The final totals will be tallied up on Friday 19th September... make sure you check in over the weekend for he results!!

Never one to shy away from a challenge, we at Home-Start Calderdale have set ourselves a bit of a challenge in aiming to recruit 50 new volunteers in 50 days! The need for our service has never been higher and the opportunities for volunteering with us have never been better - free training, accrediation, full support, on-going training and social events.

Our 50-50 campaign began on the 1st August and will run through to the 19th September and we are holding an open day in our Halifax office on Friday 5th September (with cups of tea & nibbles) for those interested and wanting to find out more - no hard selling will be involved!

If you're interested in finding out more please feel free to call or email us - or even better, pop in for a cuppa and cake on the 5th September.

If you are an existing volunteer and have a friend or family member who may be interested, why not bring them along on the 5th? Or if you've got an idea of how we can recruit more people like you, please do let us know... There's no such thing as a bad idea!
