A Family’s Story

‘From the moment I met Chanelle I knew she was perfect for us. it’s a breath of fresh air when she arrives. Although it’s still hard, all of our lives have improved 100%. I cannot thank her enough.’
Chanelle has been a Home-Start Bristol volunteer for almost 2 years. She joined us because she wanted to make a difference. She wanted to help families who needed a helping hand – because they were facing a difficult time. After completing our Initial Preparation Course she was matched with Charlotte and her lovely family – it turned out to be the perfect match! And there have been benefits for Chanelle too!
‘My own daughter also tells me I have become a ‘real fun mum’ on a Thursday and I am putting this down to visiting Charlotte and her family.’
If you are a parent/grandparent and have 2-3 hours a week to spare we would love to hear from you.
Make a difference – like Chanelle! Our next course starts in September in Redfield – for more information and an application pack visit
