Charity information

Home-start Southport & Formby

We offer friendship, advice and support to families who have children aged from 0-5. Support is offered through trained volunters, who are all parents themselves, by visiting the families in their own homes or through our Family Support Group. All kinds of families can find it hard to cope for all sorts of reasons, maybe illness or disability, bereavement, lonliness etc. Our volunteers provide non-judgemental pratical and emotional support to build the famililes confidence and ability to cope.

  • Mission statement

    Home-Start Mission
    Home-Start offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children, in local communities throughout the UK and with British Forces in Germany and Cyprus.

    Home-Start offers a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers - who are usually parents themselves - to visit families at home who have at least one child under 5 to offer informal, friendly and confidential support.

    To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

    Home-Start wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.

    Core Belief
    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.
