Families in Royston and South Cambridgeshire are set to receive help and support from the newly trained Home-Start volunteers

Sarah Dixon, senior co-ordinator for Home-Start Royston and South Cambridgeshire, said: "We have 14 new volunteers who have undertaken a 10-session course to become volunteers for Home-Start.

"This will enable them to offer home visiting support to families in Royston and South Cambridgeshire."

Home-Start, which works with families in the area by offering guidance, practical help and support, has approved a new intake of volunteers following the successful completion of a preparation course.
