Home-Start is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under five years of age. Volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to young families under stress in their own homes, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown

Are you a social/health worker or other agency interested in referring a family to Home-Start for support? To refer a family in the Teesside area we suggest you:

  1. Talk to the family about Home-Start and suggest how we might be able to help
  2. Ask the family’s permission to contact Home-Start
  3. All enquires must be made over the phone by speaking with our family support Co-ordinators. As we are currently working at capacity the family you wish to refer may be placed on an enquiry list.
