Self Referral

Are you a parent looking for support?

Home-Start Kernow may be able to help you by offering you a volunteer if you:

  • live in Cornwall
  • have one or more children under the age of 5
  • are going through a difficult time in your life

F DSC_0006_group_2_babiesThere are many reasons why you may choose Home-Start.  Perhaps you are:

  • feeling isolated, maybe with no family nearby and struggling to make friends
  • suffering with post-natal depression and maybe finding it hard to talk to anyone about it
  • having a hard time coping with your child’s illness or disability
  • being affected by the death of a family member
  • struggling with the emotional and practical demands of twins, triplets or several children under 5
  • finding it hard to cope with relationship difficulties
  • feeling exhausted or depressed
  • coping with your own illness or disability
