About Home-Start Mansfield

Home-Start Mansfield is part of a worldwide charitable organisation that provides support and friendship to families with children under the age of 5.

More than Just Support

We help to increase the confidence and independence of families by:

•Visiting families in their own homes to offer support, friendship and practical assistance

•Reassuring parents that their childcare problems are not unusual or unique

•Encouraging parents’ strengths and emotional well-being for the ultimate benefit of their children

•Trying to get the fun back into family life

 

Our volunteers, who have parenting experience themselves, can offer:

•Precious time for listening and talking

•Help with the children

•A break for parents

•Practical help and reassurance

•A chance to meet other parents in similar situations

•Support to use local services and resources

Parents ask for Home-Start’s help for all sorts of reasons:

•They may feel isolated in their community, have no family nearby and be struggling to make friends

•They may be finding it hard to cope because of their own or a child’s physical or mental illness

•They may have been hit hard by the death of a loved one

•They may be really struggling the with emotional and physical demands of having twins or triplets – perhaps born into an already large family

Our quality is maintained across the country with all Home-Start schemes working to national standards.

Our sister organisation, Home-Start International, was founded in 1998 to provide similar informal, friendly, family support across the world
