Home-Start Torbay has, for 21 years, provided a high quality service and consistently achieved positive outcomes for families living in the community. Home-start Torbay is a charitable company limited by guarantee. Home Start Torbay focuses on children 0-5 years and supports parents during their children’s formative years to give them a good start in life. The main focus of Home-Start is to offer volunteer support to families in their own homes. By doing so, Home-Start respects each family’s dignity and identity and can respond to individual needs, working alongside parents to build confidence, strengthen relationships and enjoy family life. Home-Start uses parent volunteers to provide a community-based model of support for families with young children, tailored to the family’s needs. The Home-Start model offers one-to-one support and friendship to other parents through volunteer home visiting, family and specialist groups and social activities. Families need support for many reasons: they may be struggling to cope with postnatal illness, a child’s disability, family breakdown or bereavement or they may feel isolated and unable to connect with their local community. Whatever the reason, Home-Start volunteers provide practical and emotional support for families in the way they want it, when and where they need it.
