Home-Start Northern Ireland helps parents build better lives for their children. We offer regular support, friendship and practical assistance to families with children age 0-5, because these first years are essential for the child’s welfare and future development.
We work with volunteers who visit the families in their own homes, helping parents improve all aspects of a child’s life. Our vision is to create a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
During the period 2010-2011,22 Home-Start schemes in Northern Ireland supported 1631 families and 3409 children in total.
