Home-Start Ayrshire - Supporting Families
There is no rule book for raising a family. It can seem overwhelming especially if you are going through difficult times. A little help can make such a big difference.
Home-Start offers friendly and informal support by matching families with a suitable volunteer, who will visit them at home.
Our volunteers are are all parents themselves and they come from all walks of life, just like the families we support. They understand the stresses and strains of bringing up a young family.
Home-Start supports families from all parts of the community and for many different reasons. Our volunteers support families (with at least one child under eight) in their own homes. We offer a flexible approach to meet the individual needs of each family.
Volunteers are carefully matched to a family and then visit for approximately three hours a week.
They help by listening, offering companionship and by giving practical assistance.
They may help with things like: keeping appointments, playing with the children or simply providing another pair of hands.
There is no time limit to our support – Home-Start will visit families regularly to ensure that our support is still needed.
