Welcome to Home-Start Shropshire


About us

Home-Start Shropshire offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children, in our local communities.

With local offices across the county, we offer a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers - who are usually parents themselves - to visit families at home who have at least one child under 5 to offer informal, friendly and confidential support.

We know this helps give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start Shropshire supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

We believe that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them achieve their full potential. To do this sometimes everyone needs a bit of help and Home-Start Shropshire is here to support parents through offering them support, friendship and practical assistance.
