LeafletAs families turn to Home-Start in ever increasing numbers we see first-hand the pressures on family life. Poverty, income inequality, stress arising from the work-life balance, isolation, loneliness and mental and physical illness.
Being a parent, wherever you live or whatever the situation, is not easy. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life with under 5’s. It is even more difficult if family or friends are unable to offer you support and a breathing space when you most need them. Some parents lose confidence in their ability to cope and most can remember days when they would have liked someone to turn to. Home-start’s vision is a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life. With your help this can become a reality in North Dorset.
