Welcome to Home-Start East Herts

Home-Start East Herts is a local charity which supports ordinary parents in the Boroughs of East Herts and Broxbourne who are going through challenging times.

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if they have little support from family and friends when they need it most. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also having to cope with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple birth.

That’s when parents need support.

That’s when Home-Start East Herts can help.

boy reading book A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience themselves, regularly visits a family, in their own home, offering emotional and practical support through difficult times. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.
