Who we are
Home-Start Cymru offers friendship, emotional support and practical advice in the homes of families who are having difficulties managing parenting for a variety of different reasons. These could be poor mental health, managing children’s challenging behaviour, disability, domestic abuse, isolation or low self-esteem.
Our mission is to give children the best possible start in life, by supporting parents so they grow in confidence, strengthening and enjoying their relationships with their children and widening their links with the local community.
What we do
We understand that, sometimes, parents need the offer of nurturing support and guidance. A little help can make a world of difference, so our trained volunteers will visit you in your own home for between two and three hours a week to offer an extra pair of hands or a listening ear.
And because everyone is different — and each child has their own unique, individual needs — we’ll work with you to find out what you need support with, and tailor our time with you to suit that. You can also be reassured that our time with you will remain confidential.
Here are just a few of the things we can help you with:
