Having a friend can be one of the most enriching and supportive relationships in a person's life ... and it can easily be taken for granted. At Home-Start South & West Devon we value friendship
Many parents, desperate to do the right thing to give their children the best start in life, find they are fighting against the odds.
What some parents may see as a 'simple trip out to the shops' for a parent who has triplets in tow can seem impossible.
Home-Start South & West Devon supports parents with at least one child under 12 who are dealing with issues such as...
- mental health
- domestic abuse
- difficult relationships
We can help these parents to feel that the 'impossible' is possible!
One parent described Home-Start as 'ARMBANDS IN DEEP WATER' because we offer a lifeline to parents who feel overwhelmed and in desperate need of support, reassurance and friendship.
