Home-Start West Lothian is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times.

We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.

At the heart of Home-Start West Lothian’s work is home visiting volunteer support.

Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues, receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

You will be responsible for ensuring that our services are delivered to high standards, providing leadership and management to a team of staff and volunteers and for the day to day management of the scheme.

Experience of working with children and families is essential, together with a good standard of education, SVQ 4 or equivalent.

The role requires sensitivity and excellent communication skills. Use of your own car (expenses paid) is necessary. An enhanced disclosure check will be required. You should understand and be committed to the role of the voluntary sector and be able to work on your own initiative and in a challenging environment.
