Home Start Carmarthenshire
Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births.
Home-Start Carmarthenshire trains and supports carefully selected volunteers with parenting experience, who can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support in family homes.
Home-Start may be able to help you by offering you a volunteer if you:
- live in the Carmarthenshire area.
- have one or more children under the age of 16
- are in need of a little extra help
Help from volunteers may include sharing parenting skills, setting routines and boundaries with children as well as encouraging play, reading and homework.
If you are a parent looking for support, you can phone Home Start on 01269 593853 or use Contact Us for a form.
The form is simple; you can complete it yourself but please phone if you need help with this or ask someone else such as your GP or Health Visitor to do it for you.
