Do You Need Support?

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young. There is no rulebook for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, particularly if your family is going through difficult times.

As a parent you might ask for Home-Start's help for all sorts of reasons:

  • You may be feeling isolated in your community, have no family nearby and be struggling to make friends.
  • You may be finding it hard to cope because of your own or your child's illness.
  • You may have been hit hard by the death of a loved one.
  • You may be really struggling with emotional and physical demands of having twins or triplets - perhaps born into an already large family.

Help is at hand. We support any family who needs us, as long as they have at least one child under five and we have a volunteer available. If you ask for Home-Start's help you can be sure of total confidentiality. There is no stigma attached to Home-Start's help . Enhanced disclosure checks are required for all Home-Start volunteers.

After asking for our support you will meet with our local co-ordinator who will carefully match you with a volunteer (all volunteers have parenting experience). The volunteer will then visit for a couple of hours a week offering both emotional and practical help.
