Who we are
Bringing up children is hard. Home-Start has been supporting families with young children throughout the UK since 1973. Our new Lomond service has been established to continue providing that wonderful support to a wider area. Through our home-visiting volunteers we offer a unique service providing practical and emotional support to parents/carers with one or more children under 5.
Who we can help
We can help parents/carers who find it hard to cope for all sorts of reasons, including:
- those requiring short term respite or a helping hand,
- illness or disability,
- post-natal illness or mental health issues,
- relationship breakdown,
- challenging children's behaviour,
- multiple birth or multiple young children in the home,
- housing or financial issues.
At Home-Start, support is given to any parent/carer who asks for help.
If you think Home-Start Lomond could help your family why not find out more? You can either contact your Health Visitor or your GP or you can contact us directly.
What we offer
From the Lomond Office – we provide our Home-Visiting service, befriending & also offer family groups that include soft play, messy play & outdoor play amongst others.
How you can help
You too could be a Home-Start Home-Visiting volunteer. The only requirements for Home-Visiting volunteers are that you have parenting or childcare experience, are friendly and non-judgemental, enjoy meeting new people and can spare a few hours every week to offer practical and emotional support to a local family.
Just as important as our Home-Visiting Volunteers are our Board of Trustees who come from a range of backgrounds and have a variety of qualities and skills to support the organisation to run smoothly and comply with all legislation. We need people with expertise or knowledge of running businesses, social media, funding, human resources and more.
We always need enthusiastic fundraisers. Maybe you enjoy organising coffee mornings or bag-packing, kilt-walking, running or maybe even sky diving!
