Volunteer in Blackpool

Be a Volunteer with Blackpool Better Start

There are many benefits to volunteering which include helping your community, making new friends, improving your mental health and happiness, and increasing your self-esteem. There are lots of volunteering opportunities available in Blackpool which help parents to gain new skills and build self-confidence.

Community Voice

Giving a voice to parents and grandparents living in our communities is very important to us. Community Voice was created to help us understand what families in Blackpool need so we can plan future services for pregnant mums and families with young children. Find out how to get involved with Community Voice here.

Volunteer Academy

The Volunteer Academy is a service that recruits and supports Blackpool Better Start volunteers. Each volunteer is given a personal development plan that looks at their individual circumstances, and gives support and guidance to anyone wanting to take the first steps into volunteering. Find out how to get involved with Volunteer Academy here.

Ideas Events

Parents can help to improve what events Blackpool Better Start fund by attending an Ideas Event. If you have an idea about a new activity that families with young children would enjoy, then this is your opportunity to make suggestions! Play your part in giving Blackpool a Better Start. Pop into a local Children’s Centre to find out how to attend.
