Home-start

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. They are there for parents when they need it the most because childhood can’t wait.

Parents supporting parents

Home-Start works with families in communities right across the UK. Starting in the home, their approach is as individual as the people they’re helping. No judgement, it is just compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

At the heart of each Home-Start’s work is home visiting volunteer support.

Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

Home-Starts across the UK also support families in groups, hold day trips and Christmas parties and help access local services, as well as lots of other support.
