No-one understands the stresses that being a parent brings better than another parent. Hence Home-Start Guernsey is such a valuable part of the local community and has now been running in Guernsey for eight years.
Home-Start recruits parents and trains and supports them as volunteers who visit families experiencing stressful times. The volunteers work with families by simply encouraging the parent's strengths and emotional well-being for the benefit of their children.
Home-Start offers a unique blend of support and friendship achieved by home visiting. Support can be practical or emotional, but is always free, confidential and non-judgmental.
Home-Start also runs two drop in centres, Dragonflies and Dragonflies 2.
