Family Work Volunteering

As part of our mission to support people in mind, body and spirit, the Hertfordshire Family Centre Service brings together children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing to provide a complete service for children, young people and their families from pregnancy to aged 19. Commissioned by Hertfordshire County Council, we have responsibility for the area’s Family Support service.

What do we do?

We support young children and families by reducing inequalities in three core areas:

  • Child development and school readiness
  • Parenting aspiration and parenting skills
  • Child and family health and life chances

Find out more about our family work.

How do we do it?

Our Family Centres offer a space where families can enjoy services like Stay and Play or Rhyme Time, access breastfeeding and health services as well as specialised support from sites in Broxbourne, Welwyn, Hatfield, and East Herts.

What do our volunteers do?

Our volunteers are a core part of our friendly, welcoming team. Volunteers bring their experience of the joys and challenges of family life to support others and help them to thrive. As a volunteer, you’ll receive full training, and you’ll always have the support of a supervisor.
