Home-Start Goole and District

Home-Start is a voluntary organisation which is committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under the age of five. Volunteers visit families in the their own homes each week offering regular support, friendship and practical help. This family-centred support strengthens and and empowers families, enabling them to find their own way forward through their difficulties and achieve lasting change.

Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them achieve their full potential. Volunteers support parents by doing things together - e. G. Shopping, going to Parent & Toddler group, getting on top of housework, playing with the kids, going to clinic, finding benefits advice, etc - and also lots of listening and encouragement. Getting to know each other and having a laugh together is good medicine!

Home-Start responds to each family's needs through a combination of home-visiting, family groups, parenting courses and social events.
