Description:
Home-Start is a voluntary organisation which offers support to all families where there is at least one child under 5 years of age. The service offered by Home-Start is a Primary Prevention Programme. A volunteer is provided to create a supportive environment for families experiencing loneliness and isolation, ill-health, coping with several pre-school children, lone-parenting, first-time parenting. We tailor our approach according to the needs of the individual family. Our volunteers offer support, a listening ear, a break from isolation. The volunteers too are parents living in the neighbourhood. They visit families in their own homes. The volunteer and families are careful ly matched to ensure the best possible result for the individuals. Home-Start volunteers visit at least once a week. They share their time and friendship with the family, they can provide support and a break for parents of children with physical or mental disabilities, help practically with hospital and other appointments for isolated parents, support lone parents in the difficult job of child rearing, encourage fam ilies to use other resources in their community, the list is endless!
