Having a young family can be a demanding time, and if other things come along too - bereavements, illness, depression, addiction, job loss or other misfortunes, life can get unbearable for you.
During these hard times your children can miss out too.
Asking for help is one of the strongest things you can do. These are just some of the different reasons you may want to ask for home visiting support from Home Start.
If you have at least one child under the age of five, then we can help you. 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 what you are 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. Home Start volunteers will respect your privacy. All our volunteers are fully trained, they will have also undergone a criminal records check.
If you think Home Start could help, why not find out more? We have trained volunteers ready to support you. Call now on 0151 608 8288. We'll be pleased to hear from you . If you do decide to ask for support, one of our co-ordinators will get together with you, talk about your needs and carefully match you with a volunteer.
