If you are looking for more information about the support we offer to families, or are thinking about volunteering with us.
Home-Start helps families with young children cope with whatever life throws at them. Our volunteers support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. The benefits of our support include improved health and well being and better family relationships.
We provide one-to-one support for parents. Our volunteers visit the family’s home for a couple of hours every week. They tailor-make their support to the needs of the parents and children. The support is not time limited and usually lasts between 6 and 9 months, though some families move on sooner than this and others need support for longer.
A young child caught up in this can miss out on the love, routine and stimulation that are so vital for their future. We work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, time and strength they need to nurture their children.
