What We Do

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if family and friends are unable to help. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also experiencing  post-natal depression, illness, disability, isolation or multiple birth.

That’s when parents need support.

Home-Start Kernow offers support friendship and practical help to parents with a child under 5 throughout Cornwall.

A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience themselves, regularly visits a family, in their own home, offering emotional and practical support through difficult times for as long as it is helpful or needed. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.
