Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. Their volunteers support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence, and build better lives for their children. Their support improves health and wellbeing, and builds better family relationships.
Home-Start provides one-to-one support for parents. Their 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. Volunteers are very committed and will keep visiting until the youngest child turns five or starts school, or until the parents feel they can stand on their own two feet. Home-Start also run family groups and social events for families. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship which can lead to powerful change within the family.
