Charlotte Leslie MP Visits Home-Start Bristol

On Friday 2nd March, local MP Charlotte Leslie visited the  Home-Start Bristol offices. Charlotte has recently taken on the role of Home-Start Bristol patron and we were delighted to welcome her to our offices.

We were lucky enough to have two families and a volunteer here to talk to Charlotte and discuss the way in which Home-Start works with different families and for Charlotte to listen to the experiences of the families and their feelings about the type of support they had received, as well as the difference it has made to them as a family.

Celia, one of our volunteer reps was able to discuss the work from a volunteers point of view, the challenges and the triumphs that go hand in hand with being a Home-Start volunteer – and ultimately the enjoyment and successes that make it worth doing.

Charlotte stayed for over an hour and really enjoyed spending time learning about what we do and how we do it from the people who understand it. Welcome on board  Charlotte!
