Here is some information about what volunteers can offer the families through the Home-Visiting role:
Why families use Home-Start…
Families find themselves needing support for many different reasons which include:
➡️ Feeling isolated
➡️ Problems coping with their own or their child’s physical or mental health
➡️ Feeling insecure about their own parenting skills and abilities
➡️ Struggling to cope with family life, managing the household budget or the day
to day running of the household
➡️ Needing someone to talk to about their stresses and difficulties
How Home-Start Croydon can help?
The home visiting service uses trained volunteers with parenting experience to visit families in their homes once a week for 2-3 hours for up to 9 months. They can provide:
🤝 Emotional support, someone to talk to
🤝 Help to get out and about, to children’s centres, medical appointments etc
🤝 Support with parenting skills, meal planning, budgeting etc
🤝 Help to access and use other services
