Our community of parent volunteers in Central Bedfordshire use their parenting experience to give friendship and support. They do this in order to help these families back on their feet. Over 100 local parents volunteer with our charity.
In addition to the valuable contributions they make in the local community, our volunteers also benefit from the experience and skills they achieve. Each individual is a valued part of our Volunteer Team.
