Home-Start is the UK's leading family support charity.
Through the use of parent volunteers, Home-Start supports families in local communities, helping parents to build better lives for their children.
Volunteers support parents and offer friendship through home visits and via specialist groups and social events. All Home-Start volunteers have been parents themselves, so have a good level of understanding of the challenges faced by parents. Support is given to parents in a range of situations, including isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness (including post-natal illness), disability and parents who are simply finding that day to day life is a struggle.
Home-Start's services are available to families with at least one child under the age of five. Volunteers will usually visit you in your home once a week. The service provided by Home-Start's volunteers is completely confidential and non-judgemental. It's also completely free of charge.For more information speak to your doctor or health visitor, or contact Home-Start free of charge on 0800 068 63 68.Please note that the Home-Start Rossendale website is currently unavailable.
