A family’s Story

Mum Kirsty and Home-Start Bristol volunteer Maddie have really enjoyed their time together – thank you both for sharing your experience.

‘I felt comfortable talking to Maddie, my Home-Start Bristol volunteer – she was a very good listener! She was good at motivating me to get jobs done and phone calls made etc….My girls absolutely loved her and she was very good with them. I am left feeling more confident and able to cope.”

‘I have really enjoyed my time with my first family. It has been a lovely experience getting to know Kirsty and the girls and we have had lots of fun together!

I developed a great relationship with the girls and loved how excited they were to see me each week. It was amazing to see Kirsty grow in confidence and to watch them all settle in to their home and begin to get things organised.

Kirsty is a fantastic Mum to the two girls and I learnt a lot from spending time with the family which has also helped my own family too. Volunteering has been a great way to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people and it felt brilliant to feel appreciated and valued by the family.’ Maddie (Volunteer)
