Come along to a friendly, free and welcoming post natal session run by Home Start at the Cafe at Encounter Church, Winchcombe, commencing Tuesday 4 June, 10:30 – 12:00, and every Tuesday until the last session on 9 July.

This is a great opportunity to meet other parents and their babies, 0 to 6 months, get up to date advice , reassurance and expert support.

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. They are there for parents when they are needed the most because childhood can’t wait.

Parents supporting parents

Home-Start works with families in communities right across the UK. Starting in the home, their approach is as individual as the people they’re helping. No judgement, it is just compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

Across all four nations of the United Kingdom 13,500 home-visiting volunteers support over 27,000 families and 56,000 children to transform their lives.

There are over 200 local, independent Home-Starts working in 71% of local authority areas across the UK.

At the heart of each Home-Start’s work is home visiting volunteer support.

Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

Home-Starts across the UK also support families in groups, hold day trips and Christmas parties and help access local services, as well as lots of other support.
