Welcome to Home-Start in Bracknell Forest

Ruth_02-web

Home-Start in Bracknell Forest offers free, confidential support, friendship and practical help to parents in Binfield, Bracknell Town, Crowthorne, North Ascot, Sandhurst, Warfield and Winkfield.

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if they have little support from family and friends when they need it most. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also having to cope with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple birth.

That’s when parents need support.

That’s when Home-Start Bracknell Forest can help.

A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience themselves, regularly visits a family, in their own home, offering emotional and practical support through difficult times for as long as it is helpful or needed. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.

 

Please take a moment to browse through the pages of this website to find out more about our service, how to become a home-visiting volunteer or how you could offer your time by becoming a trustee of the charity.
