I was introduced to Home-Start when I was feeling all alone after fleeing a Domestic violence situation with my 3 year old and a baby of 2 months. I was feeling very hesitant when a friendly face appeared at my door. Home-Start listened to my fears and concerns regarding my child and supported me with other professionals to try and get a right diagnosis. I shall never be able to repay them for listening to me on that day when I can honestly say I was ready to take my own life. I now have a regular visiting volunteer and the relationship I have built with the volunteer and all staff within the scheme has meant the world to me and the stability of my children….. A whopping Big Thanks from me.
