Welcome to Home-Start West Dorset

We are a local independent charity offering friendship, advice and practical support to families who live in West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland. We help parents, with a child under 5, discover or rediscover the joy of parenting. We are self funded and governed but work in partnership with Home-Start UK.

Home-Start is one of the leading family support charities in the UK.

At the heart of Home-Start West Dorset's work is home visiting volunteer support. Our volunteers help families with young children deal with the challenges they face. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We believe a child’s early years are critical to their future.

With your help as a home visiting volunteera funder or a trustee, we can help local families give their children the best start in life.
