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
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.

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: Home-Start.org.uk
