Everyone needs some help sometimes. Home-start Shropshire wants to support families in our local area. We have supported thousands of families in Shropshire over a span of 30 years.

We use specially trained volunteers, all of whom are parents themselves, to support you. We ‘match’ the right volunteer to your circumstances. We support families that are struggling with various aspects of life and our aim is to help you be the best parent you can be.

I moved to this village for a fresh start, but it was harder than I thought becoming part of village life. My confidence took a knock and before I knew it I was afraid to do the school run. My volunteer helped me overcome my fear, we walked the route together and started visiting the local park again. I soon made a local friend. Home-start Shropshire really did make a difference.

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 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.
