We are a fabulous family support organisation, based in the heart of the community and are managed by local people who know and understand the needs of their community. Home-Start Seaham offers support, friendship, practical and emotional support to local parents and carers with young children. We offer a uniquie service in which we recruit, train and support volunteers who are usually parents themselves to support families who are in need of either emotional and/or practical support.
We encourage and support parents and volunteers to be activily involved within wider areas of the scheme for example: planning and organising community events, attending local, regional and national network opportunities, attening additional training opportunities and a number of parents have even gone on to become volunteers themselves with the scheme. We also provide two very sucessful parent & toddler groups in the area. With our support and encouragement, several of our volunteers have gone on to further and higher education and employment.
