about us

Home-Start in Guernsey offers confidential support and friendship for local families when you need it making your day-to-day family life and your children's future so much brighter.


 

Confidential support and friendship

for local families

 


 

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young.

 

There is no rule book for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, particularly if your family is going through difficult times. But if you can get the support you need when you need it, then day-to-day family life and your children's future can be so much brighter.

 


 

Are you:

 

  • Isolated with no family nearby and struggling to make friends
  • Suffering with post-natal illness but finding it hard to talk to anyone about it
  • Having a hard time coping with your child's illness
  • Overwhelmed by the death of a loved one
  • Struggling with the emotional and physical demands of having twins, triplets or more
  • Struggling to cope with a disability or relationship problems
  • Tired, unhappy, exhausted

 

Home-Start is here to help you and your family.

 


 

If you have at least one child under five Home-Start can help. All volunteers are parents themselves or have parenting experience, - they know what you are going through.

 

A fully trained parent volunteer (all are police checked), who has been carefully matched with you, will visit you in your home, usually once a week, and you decide what you do together - whether you need to talk, a shoulder to cry on, someone to play with or read to your children, support to make or keep medical appointments or to find out what else is available to you locally.

 

Home-Start's help is free and confidential - all you have to do is ask for help.

 


 

Everyone needs a little help sometimes

Home-Start is a great charity to have in Guernsey. The wonderful volunteers visit families in their own homes to offer support, friendship and practical assistance. I wish it had been around when I had my new born twins to cope with.
