Successful start for new project

A new project aimed at supporting vulnerable families has made a successful start in North Tyneside thanks to a show of support from volunteers.

CSV Volunteers supporting Families North Tyneside help families establish everyday routines or support parents building a relationship with their child through play, with the helpers visiting twice a week.

Project manager Melanie Eve said: “There has been an impressive response to the project so far. There have been many ordinary people who want to make a difference to a family through volunteering with us.

“We had seven volunteers complete our initial training programme, and hope to match these volunteers to a family in need in January next year.”
