Home-Start West Somerset

Charity description

Home-Start West Somerset logo
Home-Start West Somerset believe that every parent should have the support they need to give their child the best possible start.

We offer a unique service recruiting and training volunteers to support families with young children in their own home. They provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support to help families cope with isolation, illness, disability, domestic abuse, multiple births and bereavement.

Parents play the key role in ensuring that children have a happy and secure childhood, but even the most dedicated parents can face challenges that prevent them from doing all they want for their children. We support those parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

Thank you for visiting the Home-Start West Somerset profile page on MyDonate.

Often in our community families are both socially and rurally isolated. We help to improve the emotional health of both parents and children encouraging them to forge wider social networks and links with the community.

One in four children under 5 in the UK has a difficult start in life, because their families are under pressure. Yet every child deserves the best possible start; to be loved, to play, to learn and to grow in confidence. When this happens in a happy, secure family their health, schooling and life prospects all improve.

One family recently said at the end of support “A big, big thank you for the wonderful gift you gave us in our volunteer! In a very dark time your support and help showed us light at the end of the tunnel”

Please donate to support our cause.
