Home-Start is a national family support charity that helps parents to build better lives for their children. Their group of volunteers provide support and friendship to more than 32,000 families every year.
Volunteers visit the family’s home for a couple of hours every week. They tailor-make their support to the needs of the parents and children. Volunteers are very committed and will keep visiting until the youngest child turns five or starts school, or until the parents feel they can stand on their own two feet. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship which can lead to powerful change within the family.
