Home-Start Mid & West Suffolk continues to provide ongoing support services to families across the
district and are still taking new referrals. As ever our families, volunteers and staff are our priority
so we are monitoring the Covid-19 situation very closely. We are utilising alternative methods of contact
through non-face to face telephone and video communications to maintain distancing rules and safety for
everyone whilst still being able to provide a listening ear, emotional support and signposting to families.
Groups are receiving weekly activity idea's along with non-face to face communications to maintain a social,
safe and supportive place for parents to turn to during these difficult times.
If you or anyone you know could benefit from our support you can find
a Referral form here or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Home-Start Mid and West Suffolk offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children throughout the Mid and West Suffolk areas.
Home-Start offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers who have parenting experience themselves and offer families
informal, friendly and confidential support.
Parents ask for Home-Start's help for all sorts of reasons:
They may feel lonely or isolated in their community, have no family nearby or be struggling to make friends
They may be finding it hard to cope because of their own or a child's physical or mental illness
They may be finding it hard to talk to anyone
They may be suffering increased stress and finding things overwhelming
