Home Start - support for families

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when their children are young. If you have at least one child under five then Home Start can help. Being a parent can be a tough job, and a lack of support from family or friends can lead to isolation.


The Home-Start volunteers are all parents themselves, and offer friendship, support and strategies to help families establish good bedtime routines, manage challenging behaviour, and even finances.They also help families with more complex needs including mental health, child protection or domestic violence issues. They work with the family over a number of weeks providing confidential friendly support to help families grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.


They help to increase the confidence and independence of families by providing:



  • Time for listening and talking

  • Help with the children.

  • A break for parents.

  • Practical help and reassurance.

  • The opportunity to meet other parents with young children.

  • Supporting families in using local services and resources
