The local department, Home-Start Odense runs a recycling & upcycling store, which helps finance the organization's support for pressed families with children in Odense. We are looking for volunteers who will help in the shop and if possible knit / sew. You yourself help determine when and how much. We have a nice informal tone, we are spacious and appreciate each one.

Home-Start Family contact Odense is a voluntary social organization that supports pressed families with at least one child under school age. Our families' need for help is diverse, perhaps the family has a limited network, generally or locally, has physical or mental problems, is challenged in the labor market or affected by illness. Families need support, support and sparring. With Recycling & Design we help to self-finance the support for the families and therefore it is an important part of Home-Start Family Contact Odense.

We have different (children's) activities that must attract customers and, in general, draw attention to the store and the organization's work. They are planned in step with Storms Pakhus other activities / events, and are planned in cooperation with the volunteers. The number of hours and tasks is agreed on the basis of your wishes and possibilities.

  • Talk to customers and pass on knowledge about Home-Start's work
  • Hang clothes in place
  • Sew
  • Repair clothes
  • Knit

  • Academic upgrading
  • Personal development
  • New network and sweet colleagues
  • Offered 5 yearly theme and network days and events with our other volunteers

We are looking forward to hear from you.

HOME-START Family contact is an organization where volunteers offer support, friendship and practical help to families with children under school age. The purpose is to prevent crises and breakdowns in families with young children. New family and community patterns create needs in the families for support and new contacts. Families break up, the generations live far apart, and residential areas wither socially. A family friend can make a profit, and build a new network.

Many, even very well-functioning families, occasionally lack the profits that are needed to get their everyday life connected and to prevent and solve problems in time. The opportunity to get that help is in the form of a volunteer family friend.

HOME-START wants to be the family's voice, and help create relationships in society that benefit family life. HOME START supports because young children deserve the best start in life.

HOME-START is for all families with at least one child under the age of 7. The help is free and confidential and the organization is independent of religious, political and economic interests.

Home-Start Family contact Odense was established in 2011, and came to Denmark in 2006. Home-Start was originally started in England in 1973 and has branches in 22 countries worldwide. is Denmark's leading volunteer job portal.

Volunteering is for everyone - we welcome all applicants regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, social background, sexual orientation or religious background.
