Home-Start supports families who are finding it difficult to cope with the stresses of bringing up a young family. Trained volunteers visit families in their own homes. They offer time, friendship and help with everyday difficulties that parents with young children face. Support is available to any parent or carer with at least one child under five.     Would you, or someone you know, like support from a volunteer from Home-Start?

Some families prefer group support or enjoy the chance to meet and make new friends with other parents who live nearby.

Home-Start family groups provide a regular meeting place for families with at least one child under the age of five.


All Home-Start volunteers are parents or people who have experience bringing up children. They come from all walks of life and are all ages.                 

Could you give some time and help to make a difference to families lives.
