Expansion of our services
Home-Start offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers, usually parents themselves, to visit families with at least one child under 5, at home, and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support. It costs us about £1,500 to support a family and help them get through their particular difficulty. The sad thing is that there are many more referrals than we can cope with and, we would love to expand our scheme to be able to help more families.
