We understand that being a parent or carer can be very challenging, especially when children are young.  Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life.  For some it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their own or their child’s illness or disability, isolation, financial difficulties, unsuitable housing, or multiple births.

That’s when parents need support, that’s when Home-Start can help

We can offer a carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience, who will visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. This friendly one to one support is a simple yet effective way of helping families to cope during a difficult time.
