Home-Start provides a unique service for families - recruiting and training volunteers to support parents with young children at home.

Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents with at least one child under five (who is not in full time school) as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. The benefits of our support include improved health and well being and better family relationships. Our 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.

What an inspiration!
