How we can help

We're here to support you

Being a parent isn't always easy, whatever your circumstances. If you are a mum or dad with a child under five, and you are finding things tough at the moment, you can ask for support. We help parents in the Arun, Worthing and Adur districts going through difficult times including:

  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Coping with twins/triplets etc or several pre-school children
  • Ill health, disability or special needs
  • Lone parenting
  • First time parenthood or new babies
  • Coping with bereavement
  • Post-natal illness
  • Children's behavioural issues

Home-Start volunteers are people from different backgrounds and vary in age, but they all have parenting experience. They will visit you in your own home and accept you as you are. All our volunteers are carefully selected for their friendliness, practical approach and understanding, and they provide a completely confidential service. Your health visitor can refer you or you can refer yourself.

So if you live in the Arun, Worthing or Adur district and think you may be in need of our help, call us in confidence today on 01903 889707 , talk to your Health Visitor, or click here to send us a message.
