Home-Start Flintshire - enabling volunteers to support families in Flintshire since 1995


 Home-Start Flintshire is a voluntary organisation supporting families with at least one child under the age of 11.  Volunteers are recruited, trained and supported to visit families for 2-3 hours per week and to provide a listening ear and an extra pair of hands.   Home-Start's support has been proven to reduce feelings of isolation and to improve emotional well-being and coping skills within the families it supports.

We would love to speak to you about the work of Home-Start.  Every parent needs a friend, and the support of Home-Start volunteers makes an incredible difference to the lives of children and families.
