Home-Start Manchester Wythenshawe

Home-Start Manchester Wythenshawe aims to provide a supportive and protective service to families with young children in the Wythenshawe and South Manchester areas ; to effectively improve their quality of life and enable parents and children to reach their full potential. Families must either be expecting a birth or have at least one child under the age of 5 at the time of referral.
Home-Start recruits and trains people with parenting experience to offer support to families in their own homes. Volunteers gain valuable experience whilst supporting families through difficulties and many often progress to careers in related fields.
Home-Start works closely with other local agencies and organisations to offer training and activities to families in a group situation thus reducing the feeling of isolation and widening both parent and children’s social circle. The scheme receives referrals for families in need of support from health visitors, social workers and others who have contact with families with young children as well as accepting self referrals from families.
