All parents struggle at one time or another. For some, the challenges can be greater. You are not alone.

We have many different services that may help. 

How to get help

Our Services

Being a parent is never easy. Without support, families can feel alone or isolated. Home Start South Warwickshire is here to offer compassionate, confidential support to families where:

  • Parents are experiencing emotional health difficulties like post-natal depression or anxiety

  • Life feels unstable because of financial worries, relationship issues or living in poor housing

  • Parents are finding the early years of their children’s lives demanding and would like help

  • Children have disabilities or developmental delays

 

At Home Start South Warwickshire we provide a number of different services to support families going through their most challenging times.

Home-Start volunteers understand how hard it can be to be a parent. They work alongside parents (with at least one child under the age of five) in their own homes, helping them to cope with the stresses and strains of life. They make sure parents have the skills, confidence and strength they need to nurture their children.

Home-Start Family Testimonials

I’ve been really poorly with my second pregnancy as well as having a 3 year old son.  I’m a single parent too and the support offered by Home-Start has helped me massively. I gave birth to my second premature baby who weighed a tiny 3lb 2oz. My volunteer was with me at his birth so I wasn’t alone in my c-section. Being so tiny I didn’t have any clothes for him and I was given a lovely baby care package which included some premature baby clothes which was so thoughtful, meaning I wasn’t stressing about affording them and buying them. It means a lot to me to be able to dress my baby while he’s in hospital. And Home-Start has also organized volunteer lifts for me so I have transport to see my baby. I am forever grateful to Home-Start who have made me feel less alone and not left me struggling.

"I met my volunteer just before lockdown and I’m so pleased that this happened. It was great to have someone to message who was non family because I could talk and vent. Also when we started going for walks it was just time for me because I told my husband he had to look after our little girl while I was out! And while we were walking we were chatting about everything and when I got back home it felt like my head had cleared’
