Home-Start Renfrewshire

Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents/main carers play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them to achieve their full potential.

Home-Start is a local independent charity which has been set up to give friendship, advice and practical support to families who live in the Renfrewshire areas and who have at least one child under the age of 5.

To provide our service we recruit and train volunteers, who are usually parents themselves or have considerable parenting experience. The volunteers must complete our Volunteer Training Course (known as the prep course) in order to prepare themselves for their family support role.

The volunteer is then carefully matched to a family and will visit them in the family home for 2-3 hours once a week for as long as is required.

Families can refer themselves to us as well as being referred by Health Visitors, pre-5 services, social workers and other agencies.

We will provide a support service to families who meet our criteria as long as we have an appropriate volunteer to help. The volunteers are supported by regular support and supervision with their coordinator and additional training opportunities.
