Home Start Cymru

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.

That’s when Home-Start Cymru can help. A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience, can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track

We work closely with local health professionals including Midwives, Health Visitors, GPs and Community Mental Health Teams. Social Workers, Family Support Workers and Pre-Schools/Nurseries can also refer families to us for support.

If you are a parent looking for support, you can phone Home Start on 07873 337740 or email

The whole Carmarthenshire team are an asset to us childminders and I know from speaking to other childminders in the UK that they do not have such a fantastic team behind them. I could not recommend this enough for anyone who would like to become a childminder in Carmarthenshire.
