Home-Start Brent

Home-Start Brent provides a holistic package of preventative, supportive and progression services to Parents and families going through difficult situations e. G. Isolation, children’s behavioural problems, household management, relationship difficulties, who live in the borough. On referral ( health visitors, social workers, teachers, other voluntary organizations, faith groups, friends and family etc and self referral ), the Parents are assigned a Family LifeSkills Co-ordinator who will complete the Initial Assessment. This assessment is invaluable as it creates the foundation on which the family and us can build a cohesive relationship and service as well as provide us with monitoring and evaluation material.

Some aspects of the package (comprising of different projects) which parents can access as appropriate are:
1 Parental Outreach - One to one home support, advice and practical help by a Home Visiting Volunteer
2 Family LifeSkills & Parenting Skills programme - Group support for Parents
3 Peer Mentoring/Home Visiting for Teenage Parents
4 Parent & Toddler Group - Chalkhill Wembley - Integration of diverse communities
5 Home Visiting Volunteer Training Programme – Skills training for people with Parenting Experience
6 Transition Programme - Parent Support in Schools at Key transition stages
7 Pre- Employment, Education and Training Programme
8 Creative Kids – clothes & book swap for disadvantaged families in Brent
