Welcome to Home-Start East Surrey

Home-Start East Surrey is a local charity, which provides regular support, friendship and practical help for families with young children who are struggling to cope. This maybe for a variety of reasons; e.g. disability, bereavement, multiple births, isolation.

This service is provided for families living in the East Surrey area; including, Redhill, Reigate, Horley, Tandridge and Dorking.

Our volunteers visit families weekly and work alongside parents, in their own homes, to help them cope with the difficulties they are facing. Home-Start works because our trained volunteers are parents and they understand how hard it can be to bring up young children.

There are over 300 Home-Start schemes across the UK offering help to than 32,000 families every year.

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 East Surrey 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.
