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.
We are closed for the Easter break from 4:30pm Thursday 6th April and reopen on Tuesday 11th April.
If you need support, the following services are available over Easter:
Cost of Living Helpline: 0800 023 2692
Free 24/7 Shout text service. Text the word SHOUT to 85258
Samaritans: call 116 123 for free anytime day or night
“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.
