Volunteers Supporting Families
Home-Start Daventry and South Northants offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children who are experiencing stressful or difficult situations. We offer a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers – who are parents themselves – to visit families with at least one child under 5, at home, to offer informal, friendly and confidential support. We help parents to grow in confidence, to strengthen and enjoy their relationships with their children and to widen their links with the local community. We recognise the real, mutual and personal benefits gained from sharing the realities of parenting in so many positive and constructive ways within their own communities
Home-Start Daventry and South Northants is a local charity which supports families in and around Daventry who are experiencing difficulties.
Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support.
That’s when Home-Start Daventry and South Northants can help. A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience, can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. 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.
