KInd words from families we've helped

Helpful, supportive, a life saver at times, encouraging, fun, enjoyable. The kids enjoy coming to group, nice to meet other parents, finding out about services that are helpful to me and my children.

I can’t thank you enough for being my volunteer. You have always been there when I need you and have never let me down. You have seen me at my very worst this past year and have also known me at my best. You don’t have to do anything but in fact you gave me a lifeline and I will never forget that. You are an amazing person.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done. I can never thank you enough for all the support, advice and hugs! You’ve not only helped me , but my partner and the children too, God only knows where I’d be now if I hadn’t been referred, but I know it wouldn’t be a strong confident me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

To everybody at Home Start, We can’t even begin to say how much you have done for our family at such a difficult time, we will always remember you and be grateful for everything you did.

Kind words from the past

The children will never know the impact Home-Start has had on their lives, it has given them a stronger mummy.


Absolutely amazing organisation – I tell everyone about it.


Volunteer was excellent, really impressed how quickly the visit was made.  Thought the team was amazing, really satisfied by all the support.

So upset about the funding – I would love to be able to volunteer for you.

Kind words from referrers

Clear changes evident within the family.  Support was very beneficial and has assisted the family in taking some ownership of their needs.


Thank you for all your support last week, we really appreciated your kind words and wishes.

Families supported at times of need, short term interventions for long term gain, very valuable service.

This is a fantastic service which makes a difference for a family.

Having the ability to refer to Home-Start is invaluable.  Their volunteers are competent, friendly and non-judgemental, enabling them to form good relationships with and provide vital support to families who are experiencing adversity.

Kind word from volunteers

Feel that I am making a positive impact on the children and the welfare of the whole family.

I feel valued and appreciated by the families and Home-Start.  Feel privileged to be welcomed into a family’s home.

Feel very satisfied, warm feeling that I am making a difference to children and their families lives.

You are doing an excellent job – very up to date and supportive as families become more complex.

To everybody at Home Start, thank you for making me feel so welcome.
