Whatever life throws at you, we’re here to help!

Whatever life throws at you, we’re here to help!

We support anyone bringing up a child, or children, under five, and in need of a helping hand, or a listening ear. The first five years with your child are a special time, but they can be overwhelming, particularly if other things go wrong.

Job loss bereavement, post-natal depression, and feeling isolated and unable to cope are just some of the things that can reduce your confidence as a parent.

When times get tough, we offer

Regular committed support from a trained volunteer who is also a parent and understands how hard it can be with young children. Our support is flexible and responsive to your needs and can include:

A listening ear, someone to talk to
Helping out and playing with your children,
Reassurance, encouragement and motivation
Practical help
Help finding out about local amenities and services

Join one of our Family Groups

We have a group in Petersfield and one in Clanfield for parents with at least one child under 5. You will have a chance to relax, make new friends, share experiences, and gain self-confidence as a parent.

Home-Start Hampshire - Giving Children the Best Start in Life

The first years of a child’s life are fundamentally important; they are the foundation that shapes their future growth, health, happiness and development. Yet we all know life is complicated, and when a crisis hits, and support is not available, the devastation experienced by children can last a lifetime. Home-Start volunteers throughout the Meon Valley area provide parents the support they need to give their children vital love and care, working with families in their own homes to make sure they have the skills, confidence and strength to nurture their children. With your help we are there for parents when they need us most because childhood can’t wait.

To support our work and help us raise money we are holding a Charity Golf Day at Corhampton Golf Club In aid of Home-Start Hampshire Monday 20th May 2019

Team event – teams of 4, Cost: £37 per person including lunch.  Closing date: Friday 3rd May.
