Home Link Family Support

We provide a home visiting service for families with children under five who are experiencing some difficulties and live in Edinburgh or Midlothian.

Many parents don't have any supportive adults to talk to about their children. We provide trained volunteers and staff who will visit for 2 hrs a week to offer a listening ear and also help to get the whole family engaged in fun early learning activities. Parents say that they gain confidence and enjoy family life a lot more.

Visits can be arranged on weekdays at times that suit the family.
The service is free.
