What we do
Home-Start Merton is a voluntary organisation in which parent volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families with at least one child under the age of eleven, in their own homes, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown, whilst emphasising the pleasures of family life.
Home-Start Merton recognises the diversity in families and respects race, cultural and religious traditions. All relationships are based on good communication, respect and trust. The relationship between the Home-Start volunteer and the family is established by choice.
Families need support for many different reasons, including: postnatal illness, isolation, relationship difficulties, poverty, disability, single parenthood, depression, mental illness and coping with multiple births and children’s challenging behaviour.
