About Home-Start Cotswolds
Our trained volunteers are parents so they understand how hard it can be to bring up young children. They visit families every week, working alongside parents in their own homes, to help them through the problems they are facing. We also run groups in various locations across the region.
Home-Start volunteers visit families at home each week, supporting parents in situations as diverse as isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness or disability; some are just finding parenting a real struggle.
All our volunteers have parenting experience. They provide non-judgemental, practical and emotional support and help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope.
Home-Start runs more services, and has more volunteers supporting more families, than any other family support charity in the UK. All local Home-Start schemes, including Home-Start Cotswolds, work under the umbrella of Home-Start UK.
