Kernow Home Start


Home-Start wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.

Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. The benefits of our support include improved health and well being and better family relationships.

Our volunteers visit the family's home for a couple of hours every week. They tailor their support to the needs of the parents and children. Volunteers are very committed and will keep visiting until the youngest child turns five or starts school, or until the parents feel they can stand on their own two feet. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship.

We also run family groups and social events for families.
