Home-Start- Mid & West Suffolk
Home-Start Mid and West Suffolk offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children throughout the Mid and West Suffolk areas.
Home-Start is there to help parents deal with the challenges they face. These may include post-natal depression, disability, bereavement or financial issues. Home-Start recruits volunteers who are parents themselves and who can therefore understand how hard it can be. These volunteers are fully trained and can visit families on a weekly basis to offer families informal, friendly and confidential support. The service is completely free.
As well as their volunteer service Home-Start run several support groups in the area. They can also provide families with access to local services as well early interventions and preparation for children starting school.
Families can either be referred by professionals or by other family members/friends. Home-Start also accepts Self-Referrals. To make a referral either call the Mid & West Suffolk team on 01359 678552 or if you prefer you can fill in their referral form online.
