Helping families to help themselves.

Family Pastors are trained volunteers who can work with the family by listening to them in a non-judgemental way and helping them gain the support they need to make changes, find solutions to their challenges and bring new hope into their lives. These volunteers come alongside families in their homes, for 1 hour a week. Listening, encouraging and supporting change.

They are a consistency in the family’s life as they support them for 6-9 months.

Reversing the tide of family breakdown in some of Hereford’s 1,023 most troubled families.

We’re keen to recruit considerate, caring, trustworthy volunteers who consider themselves good listeners, encouragers and non-judgemental.

If you fit the bill and can commit to volunteer for 6-9 months we’d love to hear from you.  No previous experience is necessary, all our volunteers are given full training by professional teams.

We look forward to hearing from you.
