Home-Start is a voluntary organisation supporting families in Flintshire with at least one child under the age of 11.

We currently offer support within the home of the family or within our group setting in Holywell.

Volunteers ideally with parenting or caring experience are recruited, trained and supported to visit families for 2 - 3 hours per week offering a unique mix of emotional and practical help.

All parents need help at sometime, and parents ask for help from Home-Start for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Feelings of isolation
  • Experiencing effects of ill health and/or disability
  • Difficulties in managing the household budget
  • Struggling with emotional health/depression
  • Difficulties in managing children's behaviour
  • Bereavement
  • Multiple birth
  • Housing issues
  • Stress associated with conflict in the family

Volunteers are carefully matched - linking the skills of each volunteer with the needs of the family.  Our volunteers are friendly, approachable and give their spare time to provide encouragement, a listening ear and an extra pair of hands for a few hours once a week.

We are based in Mold at the CORLAN Voluntary Centre and cover the whole of Flintshire.  We have a staff team of 5, managing up to 36 volunteers per week.  We have an varied Board of Trustees who oversee the management and strategic development of the scheme.  Contact us on 01352 744060 or email admin@home-startflintshire.org.uk to find out more.
