OPP OF THE DAY: Family Support Volunteer, Safe Families for Children

Dudley Council and Safe families are looking for people who can make a difference by supporting families local to them. Facing life alone can be hard. When a family feels that they are isolated, that there is no one who can help them, it’s a scary pace to be. We believe by coming alongside them and offering positive support we can change that, being a friend or good neighbour can be the difference that is needed. We don’t believe its rocket science, we do believe that showing care and support can change the trajectory of a family’s journey from heartache and despair to joy, peace, connection and belonging.

We want to create an opportunity for volunteers to support families alongside staff in the Family Centres across the borough. Training and support will be given to get you started and there will be continuous support as you impact families in a positive way.

Can you offer a couple of hours or more to support a family local to you? If you can, it would be great to hear from you so we can start providing more positive connections for families who need it.
