At Hurdle, volunteers are essential to us and the work we do with children and families. Volunteers help us by:
Are you a compassionate, empathetic, enthusiastic and motivated individual who strives to make a positive difference to vulnerable families in your community? If yes, then we want to hear from you!
We ensure all our volunteers receive a robust induction and training programme, in addition to regular supervision.
There’s lots of varied volunteer opportunities at Hurdle for you to get involved in.

Hurdle refers to ‘Experts by Experience’ when we talk about any parent who has experienced social care involvement or suffered removal of a child from their care and who has made positive changes in their lives. We really want to hear from you if you have had a child removed from your care or have completed a parenting assessment successfully and feel that your experience can be used to benefit others in similar situations.
We need Experts by Experience to be involved in what we do so we can make Hurdle’s services better. We want our services to be informed by the views, opinions and ideas of the parents we work with.
On any given day, we can expect 5 new-born babies in England to be removed from their parents’ care. In so many cases, the parents have never received the support they need to overcome past trauma and without our care, are unlikely to ever receive it. Your donation can make a huge difference to vulnerable families in Coventry, enabling parents and their children to be happy and healthy.
We are extremely grateful to those who support Hurdle’s cause and are passionate about improving the lives of vulnerable children and families.
