In the latest episode of our podcast, we visit Home-Start Wakefield and District to hear about the challenges facing families, and how they are developing creative ideas to meet the needs of their community.

We also speak to Jackie, a volunteer who has been working with families for over 13 years. Jackie tells us the inspirational and moving story about her motivation to give her time, and the impact that volunteering has on her.

“It’s just like an extended family,” she says. “There’s somebody out there that’s willing to help. All you’ve got to do is phone up and see if we can help.”
