Home-Start offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children in local communities throughout the UK. Home-Start offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers who are usually parents themselves to visit families with at least one child under five, at home, and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support. We also run family support groups.
We support families often thought of as 'hard to reach' at times when they most need help and may not be accessing mainstream services provided by the local children's centres or other statutory organisations. However we work closely within the Government agenda to give every child the best possible start and to support parents to increase their confidence and parenting skills.
