Home-Start volunteers help families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.
Our volunteers transform the life chances of some of the most socially excluded children and families. They support families, build confidence, reduce isolation and improve outcomes for children
Home-Start was founded in 1973. The first Welsh Home-Start started in 1983 in Conwy.
In Wales our most recent reports show Home-Start supported 1,256 families, with 606 people volunteering.
Starting in the home, our approach is as individual as the people we’re helping. No judgement, just compassionate, confidential
help and expert support.
One of the most important roles played by a Home-Start volunteer is to help people access local services in their area.
