Visitors from Fifth Day

Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

Home Start Bristol and South Gloucestershire supports families living within the local area who have at least one child under 5 and who are experiencing problems affecting their welfare as a family.

What will you be doing?

We believe that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play a key role in giving their children a good start in life, helping them to achieve their full potential. Rooted in the communities we serve, we aim to make a lasting and positive impact on the development of children and the health and well being of the family. 

What are we looking for?

We encourage you to apply if you are keen to commit to supporting families with young children in and around Bristol, to share your own skills and experience to improve our support to families and to learn along the way. So much the better if you have experience in any one of safeguarding, HR, marketing, social media, IT, finance or fundraising. But if not, please anyway offer us your own life experience and skills.

What difference will you make?

You will play a dynamic role as part of a small team steering and sustaining the Charity. For your own personal development you can grow your experience and knowledge of the voluntary sector with training and the support of experienced board members.

Before you apply

Please apply through Reach in the first instance. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete our additional application form.
