What Our Families Say
Names have been omitted to protect confidentiality.
“I feel motivated to work through my problems and get through the day. Without a volunteer I felt I couldn’t cope with the demands of three under fives at home. Therefore it really helps to have a volunteer.”
“My volunteer has been of enormous value to myself and my family. At times, I don’t know how we would have managed without her!”
“I felt the support given to my family was excellent. I had a very good relationship with my volunteer and she encouraged me as a mum and individual and gave me positive feedback. It helped me get through a hard time in my life. I would definitely use the service again if I was having difficulties in my life.”
“As a mother of twins I received support from Home-Start Merton when the boys were 5 months old. I had been finding things very difficult I was diagnosed with post-natal depression and my husband’s work was mostly in the evenings. A volunteer came to help me one evening a week, to help with bath and bedtime routine, by which time I was very exhausted after a long day. We have all, as a family, found our volunteer very supportive. Thank you Home-Start”
“I find Home-Start Merton a brilliant idea. It is a great help and support for anyone in my situation. I would like to express my appreciation towards the staff for being so kind and understanding.”
