Home-Start North Dorset recruit and train volunteers who provide support and friendship by way of one-to-one practical and emotional help to families where there is a child under 5 years old. Home-Start North Dorset helps families deal with whatever life throws at them. The support is tailor-made to the needs of the parents and children. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship which can lead to powerful change within the family. The volunteers visit the same family for 2 to 3 hours each week on a long-term basis working alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, time and strength they need to nurture their children. Parents learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their families and in turn give their children the best possible start in life.
