Home-Start

Apr 4, 2019 | VCS

Home-Start provides a vital lifeline for local families with children under five. At the heart of our local charity are the parent volunteers who give their time to help other parents who are struggling to cope. They support them to manage their own issues as well as helping their pre-school children to be ready for nursery and school.  Last year we helped 324 vulnerable families and over 615 children in the boroughs of Hounslow, Richmond and Kingston; most being referred by Health Visitors and other professionals. Our trained volunteers support parents with difficulties such as mental health, family breakdown, domestic abuse, bereavement, disability or a combination of factors that can affect their children’s welfare. Please call us if you would like any more information on 020 8577 9552 (Hounslow office) 020 8487 8500 (East Sheen office) or visit www.homestart-rkh.org.uk .

At the moment, we are particularly looking for parents from Hounslow Borough.  If you have some free time next term, and you are a parent or grandparent, you could help other families with pre-school children.  Home-Start is offering a free course to train you to be a home-visiting volunteer, supporting families with difficulties such as post-natal illness, bereavement or disability. The course will run in Hounslow 9.30am-2.30pm, on Thursday 6th , Thursday 13th, Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June and Wed 3rd July. Training can be accredited to NVQ 1 or 2 (optional). After the course, you would visit a family for 2-3 hours once a week. For more information, please contact Angie Ahmed 020 8487 8500 info@homestart-rkh.org.uk.
