Home-Start offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children in local communities throughout the UK.
Home-Start offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers who are usually parents themselves to visit families with at least one child under five, at home, and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support.
Home-Start Schemes are rooted in the communties they serve. They are managed locally, but supported by the national organisation: this offers direction, training, information and guidance and ensures consistent and quality support for parents and children wherever they are.
Home-Start has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and welfare of the family.
What families that have been supported by Home-Start say:
Home-Start urgently needs more volunteers to support families in Richmondshire. There are parents near you who are struggling to cope and support the children they love so much. Just 3 hours a week can make a huge difference to parents under pressure.
By using your experience as a parent to give a helping hand or listening ear, you can support families to give children the start in life they deserve. We will give you full training and support.
