We are a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families and children living in South Warwickshire
What we do
Home-Start South Warwickshire is one of more than 200 local Home-Start schemes which are run as small independent charities under the Home-Start UK umbrella. We are a local community network of trained volunteers who, together with expert staff, support struggling families with children under the age of five through their most challenging times.
There for parents when they need us most
We support families facing mental health difficulties, post-natal depression, isolation, loneliness, the effects of domestic abuse and physical health problems (amongst others). These families receive emotional and practical support from us.
Our Family Support volunteers work alongside parents in their own homes to improve parenting skills, boost confidence and well-being, help with family management and establish social networks. We also offer groups for families, to provide help with early childhood development, domestic abuse and building relationships in the community.
With Home-Start a family can be sure of support that is non-judgemental and confidential. There is no stigma attached to Home-Start’s help which is why so many referrers and parents contact us to ask for support.
The earliest years make a big difference. Home-Start helps to make those years count, so no child's future is limited.
