Home Start Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre
We are a local charity that supports any family living in the Blackpool, Fylde or Wyre area who needs us. There are times when we all need support and friendship but do not know where to turn. If you have at least one child under the age of 5, and need a bit of support, we can help.
We offer a unique service that helps families who are experiencing difficulties while bringing up young children. The safety and well-being of children is the centre of everything we do. We recognise that often the best way to help children is to support their parents, helping them give their children the best possible start in life.
Parents helping Parents, it's simple and it works!
Our trained volunteers help to give encouragement and support to change the pattern of troubled lives.
Since 2010 things have moved very fast. We started with no families or volunteers, and up to August 2012 we have 109 families and have trained over 40 home visiting volunteers.
We have a tremendous support network around us consisting of an experienced board of Trustees, professional advisors and a vast number of volunteers who help us at every turn including manning the kitchen for toddler groups, assisting at fundraising events and designing our webpage!
