Home-Start Shropshire

Description:

Home Start offers friendship, emotional support and practical help to families.

We aim to increase the confidence and independence of families by visiting families in their own homes to offer support, friendship and practical assistance for two to threes hours a week. Reassuring parents that their difficulties are not unusual or unique! We encourage parents' to build on their strengths and enable them to cope better emotionally with the things that life throws our way, all for the ultimate benefit of their children. Trying to get the fun back into family life our volunteers, who have parenting experience themselves, can offer:

  • precious time for listening and talking
  • help with the children
  • support maintaining routines at home
  • practical help
  • reassurance
  • support to access and use local services and resources

Home-Start Shropshire has two area offices to cover the county.
