New Preparation Course Starting Soon

Hello Everyone

We have now started getting ready for our next Preparation course to begin on Tuesday 5th March 2019 from 10am.

*Preparation Courses run for 15 weeks once a week for a three hour session. The first two sessions of every preparation course are mandatory for every volunteer.

The last Preparation Course ran smoothly and from it, 11 new volunteers became a part of Home-Start Leeds.

Here is what they had to say;

Office move

On a very sunny Saturday in August and with the help of some ‘strong’ friends, we moved into our lovely new office at Mabgate.

Whilst it is very sad to see Oxford Place close after so many years supporting our most vulnerable in the city, we look forward to many happy years in our new home.

Thank you

We have received a generous donation of £750 from SLR Consulting, the employers of Vicki, a mum supported by our volunteer Jan when she had her baby triplets. The three girls are now energetic 4 year olds and starting school in September. Many thanks to Vicki for nominating us for this donation.

Quality award

We are very proud to have been awarded the Leeds Volunteering Kitemark designed to give recognition that an organisation meets the principles set out in the Leeds Compact.
