Welcome to Home-Start Manchester.
We are a local family support charity who recruit and train local parent volunteers to provide weekly emotional and practical home visiting support to families with at least one child under the age of 5 years.
“My volunteer was like an angel sent to bring me out of a dark place. I don’t want to think about where me and my children would be without her.’’
To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.
For an insight in to what we do, take a look at this video which looks at how Home-Start families are helped in getting their children ‘school ready’ and the training that volunteers go on in order to support families who are struggling to cope…
