Who We Are and What We Do

Home-Start Glasgow North West is a voluntary organisation set up to increase the confidence and independence of families with at least one child under five years old who are experiencing difficulties.

We select, train and support volunteers who:
  • Visit families in their own homes
  • Offer support, friendship and practical assistance
  • Encourage the parents' strengths and emotional well-being for the ultimate benefit of the children
  • Encourage families to widen their network of relationships and to use effectively the support and services available within the community.

The scheme has five part-time members of staff. Our volunteers are people from different backgrounds and of different ages, but all have parenting experience. Volunteers are carefully selected for their friendliness, practical approach and understanding.

Contact us for further information or if you would like our support or would like to volunteer.
