About us

families picHome-Start believes that children need a happy, secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them achieve their full potential. Even the most dedicated parents can face challenges that prevent them doing all they want for their children.

Our committed and caring volunteers, usually parents themselves, offer friendship and informal support to parents with young children. They visit families at home and are friendly, approachable people who respect the needs of each individual family.

We offer help through a combination of home-visiting support, group work and courses via our

Family PNI Project, Family Know How Project, Active Families Project and Young Parents Project - (see How We Can Help)

Home-Start has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and welfare of the family.
