As a parent you might ask for Home-Start’s help for all sorts of reasons:
Help is at hand. We support any family living in Trafford with a child of any age, or any family living in Salford or Wigan who have at least one child under the age of five and who maybe finding it hard to cope.
But what do we mean by ‘support’? If you ask for Home-Start’s help you can be sure of total confidentiality. Almost 25% of families refer themselves, the remainder having requests made on their behalf e.g. by a health visitor.
After asking for our support you will meet with one of our local co-ordinators who will carefully match you with one of our volunteers. Our volunteers, who all have parenting experience and have been safely recruited, will visit you for a couple of hours a week and give you both emotional and practical help.
