Who are we?
We are a charity that has been supporting local families since 1997.
We have a team of committed, professionally trained and highly experienced volunteers and family support workers who deliver Home-Start's unique brand of family support across a range of issues, offering both practical and emotional help to empower families to function more independently.
Our team provides home visiting support for families across a range of issues such as post-natal depression, coping with disabilities, isolation, low self esteem, parenting problems, routines and boundaries, nutrition and cooking, attending medical appointments and lots more. We offer both practical and emotional support for 2-3 hours, 1 day a week. Through early intervention our volunteers aim to empower families and give them strategies so they are able to function more independently and to be able to deal with issues themselves in the future.
