Home Visiting Service

Early-intervention home-visiting support is at the heart of what we do. It is a solution we have adapted and refined over 39 years.

Our highly-trained volunteers help families facing isolation, the effects of post-natal illness, disability or mental health issues, bereavement, multiple births and a whole range of other challenges.

After meeting with the family to discuss their specific needs, our expert co-ordinators match the family to a volunteer, who then visits them every week for two hours. The help we give to each family is unique and depends entirely on their individual needs.

Home-visiting support makes a great difference to families’ resilience, helping them to cope with the difficulties they face. Our statistics show that the following identified needs were achieved or partially achieved, as a result of our support (April 2021 – March 2022 figures):

  • 94% of parents were more able to manage children’s behaviour
  • 87% of parents were coping better with mental health problems
  • 90% of parents felt less isolated
  • 82% of parents’ self-esteem improved
  • 73% of parents’ felt more able to manage stress

“My son and I loved our volunteer, we looked forward to her visits and will not forget the difference she made to me as a mum and him when he is out”

It costs approximately £1500 to support a family with our home-visiting service for 9 months.
