Give Support

Could you make a difference to local families by supporting us? Many parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young. Your experience as a parent can really help others. I would like to know more about volunteering.





Porter Dobson Solicitors in Bridport have chosen HSWD as their charity for the year - thank you!



An informative AGM held on 6 July outlined the challenges experienced not just by HSWD but all charities. The highlight was hearing about why one of our volunteers volunteers and also a Mum explaining how Home-Start helped her through a very difficult time.


Our next volunteer preparation training course will commence on Wednesday 27 September 2017
