Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them to achieve their full potential.
Vision and Objectives
We want to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
We want all our children to grow up with:
- Safe places to live and play
- Support when their parents suffer from a mental illness
- Protection from hunger and poor nutrition
We aim to:
- Reach out to families who need us most
- Champion and promote the value of volunteers and volunteering
- Actively engage in partnerships that improve family support and services
We do this by providing:
Home Visiting Service- Volunteers with an interest in helping children and families will be safely recruited and trained to offer practical and emotional support to families in their own homes. They will build a unique relationship with the family which will provide a sound basis for helping through those difficult times. Visits will be between 2-4 hours and will focus on the needs identified by our experienced Organisers, responsible for the supervision and support of the volunteers.
Family Learning Group- twice weekly families will be supported in a nurturing group which focusses on strengthening the relationships and confidence within a family to provide children with the opportunities they need to develop and grow.
Tenancy Support Service- Supporting families with the expertise of Tenancy Support Workers who will prevent homelessness and support with all issues in acquiring and maintaining a tenancy within Wrexham.
