Home-Start is a voluntary home-visiting program that supports families (with at least one child under five years) in the Newcastle and East Lake Macquarie areas.
The Program Coordinator links trained volunteers to a family; the volunteers work on a one-to-one basis and provide practical support and friendship to the family through regular home visits.
Home-Start has 30 volunteer visitors, whose ages range from 26 to 75. They are selected for their parenting experience, caring attitudes and ability to relate to others. Each year new volunteers undertake Home-Start volunteer training to join our highly regarded program.
