Help for your family
Do you ever feel like this?
Isolated in your community, with no family nearby and struggling to make friends.
Suffering with post-natal illness but finding it hard to talk to anyone about it.
Having a hard time coping with your child’s illness.
Overwhelmed by the death of a loved one.
Struggling with the emotional and physical demands of having twins, triplets or more.
Struggling to cope with a disability or relationship problems.
Tired, unhappy, exhausted.
…or any similar problems.
Home-Start can help you and your family
If you have a least one child under five then we can help.
We support thousands of parents just like you through
our Home-Start volunteers. They are people who are
parents themselves or have parenting experience – so
they know just what you’re going through.
They will visit you in your own home – usually once a
week. You decide what you will do together. Maybe you need someone to talk to who won’t judge you; a shoulder to cry on or perhaps someone to play with or read to your children; maybe a bit of support to make or keep medical appointments or to find out what else is available locally. You decide.
It’s free and confidential
You don’t have to pay for Home-Start’s help and it’s confidential. Home-Start volunteers will respect your privacy and never forget that you have invited them into your home.
Home-Start has years of experience
Home-Start is a national charity with hundreds of
schemes in local communities. Our local Home-Starts
recruit and train parent volunteers. We’ve been doing
it for many years, so you can rest assured that your
volunteer will have been fully trained and carefully
matched with you - they will also have undergone a
criminal records check to ensure your child’s safety.
All you have to do is ask
If you think Home-Start could help, why not find out
more? Talk to your doctor or health visitor or contact
us yourself. Find your nearest Home-Start by phoning
free on 0800 068 63 68 or online at www.home-start.
org.uk/findus . We’ll be pleased to hear from you. If you
do decide to ask for support one of our local organisers
will get together with you, talk about your needs and
carefully match you with a volunteer.
