Home-Start Horizons offers a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers – who are usually parents themselves – to visit families at home who have at least one child under 5 to offer informal, friendly and confidential support.
To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start Horizons supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.
Our volunteers offer emotional support and practical help to parents who are struggling with issues such as relationship break up, mental health and depression, domestic violence, disabilities of either children or parents and social isolation.
We also run family groups in the city where we work with families to increase confidence, helping with school readiness for children and run sessions on healthy eating.
