Call us, text us or email us for a friendly chat about how we can help you. We are happy to answer any questions about our service, with no commitment from you.
What to Expect from Home-Start
Home-Start help is completely free and confidential. There is no stigma attached to the help we provide and you decide how long you need the service.
We can support you with a mixture of practical help and emotional support. Your volunteer will usually visit you at home for a couple of hours each week and you can decide what happens. This could be helping you make or keep medical appointments; helping you to find out more about local services; accompanying you to a toddler group or just going for a walk together; or having a cup of tea and a chat at home, while your children play.
Our volunteers are not babysitters, home helps or trained counsellors; although they may give practical help looking after children and will always listen.
If you don’t want home visiting support then we are happy to offer a phone or text/video messaging service as well.
