We offer family support on both Deeside and Donside

Home-Start Deeside offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children living in the local community.
We offer a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers – who have experience of childcare - to visit families with at least one child under five at home to offer informal, friendly and confidential support.
To help give children the best possible start in life, we support parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen and enjoy their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

If you would like to know more about how we can help your family, or if you want to volunteer, call us now on 01330 824 443 or email us at info@homestartdeeside.org
