When I gave birth to my twin boys it was quite a cultural shock, when my partner went back to work I found the days blurred into one. My health visitor must have seen that I was struggling and she told me about Home-start.
She referred me and they came out to visit me.
They were kind and understood my issues of managing on my own with twins, even a trip to the local shop was a major military operation! The volunteer they matched with me was great. She had helped many families before and knew what I really needed.
She supported me to attend a Sure Start Children’s Centre group and then as they were older we went to mother and toddler swimming classes. It made a difference to me and now I volunteer for my local Home-Start in Shropshire.
