Volunteers Supporting Families

Period: 2020-2021

Having a friend can be one of the most enriching and supportive relationships in a person´s life and it can easily be taken for granted. At Home-Start Bracknell Forest we value friendship. Home-Start Bracknell Forest is a local charity which supports ordinary parents in Bracknell Forest who are going through extraordinary times.

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult at times, 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, just when they need it most.

Home-Start Bracknell Forest supports parents who have young children and who are dealing with issues such as:

  • Isolation
  • Mental health
  • Sickness
  • Disability
  • Domestic abuse
  • Multiple birth
  • Difficult relationships
A carefully selected volunteer who has parenting experience, will regularly visit a family in their own home, offering emotional and practical support through difficult times. This parent to parent support is a simple yet effective way of giving hope and enabling families to get back on track.
