“Home-Start offered amazing support for both my daughter and I, helping us get through a challenging time and manage our emotions to work better as a unit. They spent lots of time listening to me offload and I appreciated their time and effort in making me feel less isolated and turning around my mental wellbeing for the better.”
There is no such thing as a typical Home-Start family. We support all families regardless of gender, age, cultural background or religious belief. Below are two films that highlight two very different family’s stories and experiences of Home-Start.
A short film about how Home-Start Trafford, Salford and Wigan and Home-Start Manchester supported Sonia and her two little girls, in the aftermath of fleeing domestic abuse, as part of the Government- funded ‘Starting Well’ project
Hear how we supported Terri and her girls through the Pandemic, and the difference that volunteer Linsey made to Terri as she coped with two small girls as a single mum.
Joanna’s story- hear how Joanna reached out for our support after the birth of her twins, when she began to suffer from postnatal depression.
Ruksan’s story- hear how vital support from Home-Start was received by Ruksan’s as she dealt with the aftermath of fleeing domestic abuse.
Yanyan’s story – A short film about how we supported Yanyan and her twins after the death of their dad, and how they helped the family during Lockdown
Told through the eyes of a little boy George, ‘Mum, Jenny and Me’ , highlights the impact a Home-Start volunteer has on his and his mum’s future.
