Welcome to Home-Start in Hampshire
Home-Start in Hampshire is a consortium of the 11 locally managed Home-Start charities in Hampshire, Portsmouth & the Isle of Wight
- Influencing family support strategies
- Promoting a culture of early help and support for families
- Providing an effective early help service through trained community volunteers
We want to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
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.
