Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.
We provide one-to-one support for parents with children aged 0-14 years.Our volunteers visit the family’s home for a couple of hours every week. They tailor-make their support to the needs of the parents and children. Volunteers are very committed and will keep visiting the parents feel they can stand on their own two feet. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship which can lead to powerful change within the family.
Home-Start is committed to providing real evidence of the difference our volunteers' support makes for families, which is why we measure the issues faced by families, and the changes to their situation while they are working with a volunteer.
What goes on inside a family strongly determines the opportunities and life chances children have. Children who are raised in a stable, loving, family environment are more likely to have a positive and healthy future. But being a parent isn’t easy and sometimes life can get in the way. Circumstances throw you off course and everything else can take a back seat. A young child caught up in this can miss out on the love, routine and stimulation that are so vital for their future. Home-Start works because our volunteers are parents. They understand how hard it can be. They work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, time and strength they need to nurture their children.
Home-Start wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
Parents know just how tough it can be sometimes. Needing someone to talk to, to confide in or just share a chat and coffee with.
Home-Start Dinefwr offers this kind of support.
Our carefully trained volunteers, who all have experience of bringing up children, give emotional and practical help to any parent, with at least one child under 14. By visiting a family in their own home and offering friendship, Home-Start volunteers represent a lifeline for many families who are finding it hard to cope.
