Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. 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 parents need support

That’s when Home-Start Guildford can help

Home-Start Guildford was established in 1996.  It is a local independent charity which is part of a family of around 300 Home-Start schemes in the country.   We operate within the umbrella of a national organisation, Home-Start UK, which provides a framework of policies, advice and Quality Assurance within which we work – but no financial support.  The office for the National Home-Start UK can be found here:
