News Events

Home-Start South Derbyshire offers emotional support and practical help and information to families in order to help parents and children cope with difficult times, prevent situations from worsening and encourage positive, healthy and enjoyable family relationships.

Local volunteers who have parenting experience themselves are recruited and trained to provide one to one confidential support.

Support is tailored to the individual needs of each family and is provided in the family home for as long as the family needs it.

The scheme is designated to the South Derbyshire area and is based in Newhall.
