 ‘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.

New Family Groups

Home-Start Chichester & District are running a new family group in Methodist Church, Midhurst. The group runs once a month on the last Wednesday of the month from 10.00am-2.00pm and lunch for the families will be provided.  

Families will need to be referred to attend and they must have a least one child who is under 5. There will be planned age appropriate activities and use of an outside area.

Please contact Home-Start Chichester & District for more information.

To refer families, phone 01243 773477 or email
