Support from local Grannies?

Does anyone know of any sort of scheme or arrangement where older, retired ladies volunteer time to help/support mums in the Penwortham area? I heard something on the radio about a group doing this elsewhere in the country and thought it sounded like a great idea. My mum has time on her hands and is fantastic with kids - my daughter is grown up now. I'm thinking particularly of mums who may be new to the area and don't have much (or any) support. Does anyone have any information or ideas please? Thank you!

HomeStart is a great organisation that matches volunteers with families who need support, you could see if they have a branch near Penwortham. Some toddler groups have volunteers who help out with teas etc- saves the rota woes.
