Home-Start Guildford

Charity description

Home-Start Guildford logo
Home-Start Guildford provides regular support, friendship and practical help to families with young children who are experiencing stress or difficulties, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown.

Families that are having a difficult time whilst having a young child under the age of 5 at home can be referred to us by other professionals. The challenges these families face can vary widely: twins, a child or parent with a disability, a parent's depression, a child on the autistic spectrum, separation, bereavement and for many other reasons. Our support is unique in that we prepare volunteers to visit these families once a week for a few hours to befriend them and offer emotional and practical support. Support on average lasts nearly one year until a parent is confident enough to manage without their volunteer.

Charity No: 1154609
