Home-Start Royston, Buntingford & South Cambridgeshire

Back to Support

Home-Start is a charity supporting families going through a wide range of difficulties, providing a volunteer-led home visiting service, specialised family support groups and a school readiness programme supporting families with at least one child aged 9 or under.

‘My volunteer makes me feel I can do this even when I feel I am failing.  Never thought I could be open about my weaknesses but I can tell my volunteer anything and I can’t thank her enough.  I now feel like I am living rather than just getting by.’

What to expect?

Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support when children are young. There is no rulebook for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, particularly if you are going through difficult times. Home-Start volunteers can offer you weekly contact that is confidential, free, non-judgemental and just for you.

You don’t need to be referred, you can contact Home-Start for a chat, with no obligation to take it any further if you don’t feel it is for you – sometimes just talking can make all the difference.
