Home Start received £800
We were delighted to be awarded a grant for £800 from The Breeze Kids Trust Grant.
This will be used to purchase craft materials and group toys for the two groups we operate – a weekly Family Support Group and a Fortnightly Multiple Birth Group.
Parents use these sessions to talk through any issues they might be facing with staff, volunteers or with one another.
Many of the parents say they feel 'safe' in these settings as they don't feel like anyone is judging them so they can be completely honest about their situations – and feelings.
Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them.
They support parents as they learn and develop new coping strategies and work with them to boost their confidence and build their parenting skills and ability to ensure that, despite their problems, they are able to put stronger foundations in place so they can build better lives for their children.
