Looking for help?

Everyone needs a bit of help sometimes….

If you have at least one child under 5 then we can help. Home-Start supports thousands of parents through our volunteers. Most are parents themselves or people who understand the challenges of being a parent and know just what you’re going through.

You will be matched with a suitable volunteer who will usually visit you once a week and you decide what you will do together. Your volunteer will have completed our preparation course and will have undergone a criminal records check to ensure your child’s safety.

Maybe you need someone to talk to or perhaps someone to play with or read to your children. It could be that you need support to keep appointments or help to find out what’s available locally. You decide.

You don’t have to pay for Home-Starts help and our service is confidential. Our volunteers will respect your privacy and never forget that you have invited them into your home.

If you think Home-Start could help and you would like to find out more, please speak to your Health Visitor or give us a call yourself. We can visit you to talk about your needs and carefully match you with a volunteer.
