 ‘Every Child and Young Person in the Rother Valley Matters’

Home Start's informal and friendly support for families with young children provides a lifeline to thousands of parents and children across the UK. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. The benefits of support include improved health and well being and better family relationships.

Home Start’s trained 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 until the youngest child turns five or starts school, or until 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.
