Home Start

Published: 25 September 2020


Home-Start Cymru successfully moved to remote support for existing families in advance of the lockdown and we continue to receive new referrals into existing projects.

In these times of continued uncertainty we are seeing increased level of need amongst existing families. There is increased demand for our services in the wider community, and we know families who may not ordinarily need Home-Start services are looking for reassurance and emotional support at this difficult time.

With this in mind, we are delighted to have received funding from the WCVA Voluntary Emergency Services Fund, which will see us expand our services to reach more families. As well as rolling out more remote support.

I will be covering the Gwent region to help provide this support to the families. A family can be referred by email or give me a ring and I would be happy to discuss any support we could offer to families.
