Being a parent gives you all the skills you need to be a Home-Start volunteer.

Do you have 2-3 hours a week free to help a family with young children who might be struggling with post natal depression, multiple births, isolation, disability or any other of the issues that affect families today?

Portlethen to St Cyrus and all areas in between have families in need of your help!

To find out more about our Volunteer Course which starts at the end of October, please contact Helen or Cate on 01569 767773 or email us at office@homestartkincardine.org.

“I really appreciate the volunteer help from Home-Start. The help, support and advice provided is invaluable. We do not feel alone any more.”

 

Home-Start Kincardine at Midsummer Beer Happening Stonehaven!

The Midsummer Beer Happening Stonehaven 2016 was a great success.  We had a bunch of lovely people sign up to pull pints on the opening night to help our service raise vital funds so we can support local families.

Thank you everyone, it was great fun and a brilliant event.  £8,000 each was raised for Home-Start Kincardine, the Stonehaven Sea Cadets and the youth development programme of Mackie FP Rugby Club – absolutely amazing!

Thanks so much to Robert, Jodie, Elizabeth, Scott, everyone else who organised and everyone who attended the event.  It has made a huge difference to us.

Looking forward to the next one (-:
