Welcome to the Home-Start Calderdale website!
Add in pressures such as illness or financial worry, and without the support of family and friends, the stress can seem overwhelming. Home-Start is here because every parent should have the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
Our committed and caring volunteers, who are usually parents themselves, offer friendship and informal support to parents with young children under five during difficult times in their lives. They visit families at home and are friendly, approachable people who are relied on and trusted by parents to listen without being judgmental, and to respect the needs of each individual family. We support parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationship with their children and widen their links in the community.
