Home-Start Norfolk helps children and changes lives. Working with families with young children, we support them to cope with whatever life throws at them.
We believe it is crucial to support families to deal with problems before they become a crisis. Through providing the right support at the right time we help parents learn to cope, improve their confidence and create better lives for their children.
Why Home-Start Support Matters
The first five years of a child’s life, between birth and starting school, are vital for their development. What happens during these formative years within a family strongly determines the life chances and opportunities children may have.
Children who are raised in a positive, loving, stable, family environment are far more likely to have a positive, happy, healthy future.
Home-Start works because our volunteers are parents. They understand how hard it can be. They work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, confidence and strength they need to nurture their children.
