Our Mission

Home-Start offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children throughout the Torbay area.

Home-Start offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers who are usually parents themselves and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support.

What we do

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

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

* Precious time for listening and talking
* Help with the children

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
