A charity that provides support and friendship for families is appealing for the help of the Dunstable community to reach more people.

Home-Start Central Bedfordshire wants to make the public aware of the charity and what it does for the community.

Chief executive Linda Johnson, said: “We provide a community for the people of Dunstable, we are the neighbours, family, friends, we are there when people need support.

“Our volunteers visit families once a week, providing friendship, advice or emotional support.

“I believe there are times in life when we need help and times when we are in a position to provide help.”

The charity, based at Downside Neighbourhood Centre, provides an eight-week induction course and ongoing training for its volunteers. For more information about the charity, visit www.home-startplus.org.uk
