Emotional support for under 5s

Families need support for many reasons: perhaps struggling to cope with postnatal illness, a child’s disability, family breakdown or bereavement or may be feeling isolated, overwhelmed and unable to connect with the local community.

Whatever the reason, Home-Start provides non-judgemental, practical and emotional support to help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope. Home-Start works preventatively with parents and children and believes that all parents know that those early years before children go off to school are vital in a child’s life and parents have a key role in creating a secure childhood for their children. It’s just that sometimes they need a bit of help. Home-Start offers outreach support in the family’s own home by staff and volunteers who are parents themselves or have parenting experience and some of whom have been helped by Home-Start in the past.

If you think Home-Start could help, why not find out more?
Talk to your doctor or health visitor or contact Home-Start yourself by telephone 020 8373 2716.
