On 6 July HSWD held their AGM at the Weymouth Avenue Pavilion and summaried the high and lows experienced during the financial year 2016-2017.
Mayor of Dorchester Susie Hosford kindly chaired the meeting along with presenting length of service awards to volunteers.
The Annual Report and Fincial Accounts can be accessed here
The highlight was hearing from one of our amazing volunteers who has been with HSWD for over seven years and supported 11 families, about why she is still home-visiting and the joy, satsifaction and pleasure she gains from the role.
A lovely mum from a family the scheme has recently supported also explained to those in attendance about her reservations about having Home-Start support and then the fantastic benefits of accepting the support and the difference her home-visiting volunteer has made to her life and of her childrens too.
Thank you to everyone who joined us.
