Home Start Leith and North East Edinburgh
Home Start offers friendship and support to families who have young children, and are finding things difficult.
Home Start provides support at home through trained volunteers. Home Start offers a mixture of practical help and emotional support that is free and confidential. Volunteers will usually visit you at home for a couple of hours each week and you can decide what happens – playing at the park; helping you make/keep medical appointments; helping to find out more about local services or just having a cup of tea and a chat while the children play at home.
Home Start also run weekly groups in Leith to complement the core home visiting service: parents can also attend the Parents Early Education Partnership (PEEP) Groups and Baby Massage classes.
