Welcome to Home-Start Leeds

Parents helping parents give their children the best start in life.

 At Home-Start, we know that being a parent isn't always easy and that life can bring stress and challenges that get in the way of an enjoyable family time.

 To help parents give their children the best start we offer a unique confidential family support service. 

 We recruit volunteers from all communities and backgrounds in the city to visit families at home during a time in which the family is experiencing difficulties. They offer parents their time and   support to help them grow in confidence and increase their ability to cope and build better lives for their children and themselves.

 Our volunteers are very carefully recruited and are all people who understand the demands of being a parent and bring care, kindness and understanding to their role.

 The Home-Start approach has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and well-being of the family.
