How we can help you

vol picParents can face many challenges bringing up their children. Pressures such as

can all make a difficult time even harder.

To Home-Start every family is special and we respond to each family's needs through different projects involving a combination of home-visiting support, groups and courses. See Guide to our Services

Family PNI Project - for families who are experiencing post-natal illness
Family Know How Project - practical family support
Active Families Project - helping families become physically active together
Young Parents Project - for parents under 21 years and their pre-school child/ren

Home-visiting support consists of 2-3 hours a week by a volunteer who is normally a parent themselves - families are matched with a volunteer on the basis of level of need and the availability of a suitable volunteer.

We support parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with their community.
