Home-Start support for families is completely free. Home-Start support is delivered to families within the privacy of their own homes by a team of trained and dedicated volunteers. Professionals such as Health Visitors, Midwives, Schools or Doctors may recommend Home-Start support to you, but the decision to accept support is entirely yours. After identifying and discussing your support needs you will be carefully matched with a volunteer. Our staff are very experienced in matching families with volunteers who they believe will understand your situation and be able to work with you. However, if either you, or the volunteer, feel the match is not compatible this will be addressed. Finally, all of our support is confidential. Home-Start support is discreet.
