Home-Start Bristol on Ujima Radio

Jenny Harris one of our trustees was talking to Judith Brown on Babbers Weekly  Ujima Radio (98FM Bristol) today about volunteering in retirement.

Before becoming a trustee Jenny was a home visiting volunteer with Home-Start Bristol for 6 years. In that time she supported 5 families including a mum suffering from depression, a mum with a severly disabled baby and a challenging toddler, and a mum who had been in an abusive relationship.

‘I got to know some courageous people who were finding their way through really challenging situations.’Jenny
