WELCOME

WELCOME TO HOME START DEVERON


THE WELLBEING OF CHILDREN IS AT THE HEART OF HOME-START’S WORK


Home Start ensure that support for every family is tailored to their individual needs. Our experienced volunteers are trained and supported to work effectively within the GIRFEC (Getting it Right For Every Child) approach.


Home-Start has a robust Monitoring Evaluation system. This enables us to show a chil’s journey of change using the SHANARRI indicators.


We work towards Getting it Right for Every Child by supporting parents to cope with adversity and build resilience.


Home-Start volunteers enable parents to increase their confidence and ability to meet their children’s needs.


Our work in partnership with parents and other services helps them effect positive change in their children’s wellbeing.


We measure that change using the SHANARRI wellbeing indicators.

MEET THE TEAM


GET IN TOUCH


A Home-Start Trustee is a volunteer who sits on the Trustee Board of a local Home-Start scheme. Each scheme is an independent charity and being a Trustee is all about the governance of the charity – making sure that things are done but not necessarily doing them.

Trustees aren’t responsible for the day-to-day running of a scheme but they do carry out a wide range of duties and are responsible for making the charity effective, providing overall direction and maintaining sound management of funds.

SUCCESS STORIES


GET IN TOUCH


Volunteers visit families, in their own homes, for two to three hours per week. How you help is really down to the family itself, some might need someone to talk to, others might need more practical support with meal planning, cooking, reading to their children or finding out about local services.


Volunteers can also help to run groups such as Stay and Play sessions and cookery classes for parents.

GET IN TOUCH


Home-Start is a nationwide registered charity which supports families who have at least one child under the age of five years. To us, every family is special and we respond to each family’s needs through a combination of home visiting support, group work and social events.

We do this by recruiting and training volunteers, who are usually parents themselves, to visit families with young children to offer informal, friendly, non-judgemental and confidential support to help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope.

Home-Start works closely with a diverse range of people who have varying difficulties within their home and general day to day environment.


Every family has differing needs and challenges. Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.
