Update on Home-Start Kennet

Home-Start Kennet is a charity offering support to families with a child under 5yrs through challenging times. They have a pool of 30 volunteers they match with families to provide parent to parent support, once a week for up to 6 months. This service is free and funded by many different funders. They take referrals from Health Visitors, GP’s, Army Welfare, schools and families can refer themselves if they wish.

They have been offering telephone support throughout the Pandemic and are now moving to support visits for families outdoors this month. They will also be piloting small groups as well. They have also used social media and other technical options to engage with families and the volunteers who support them during the past few months. They currently have capacity to support more families. Please see their leaflet for more information and their website: [Home-Start Kennet]

You can also call 01672 569457 for more information.

Their sister Home-Start in South Wiltshire (covering Salisbury/Amesbury) is also offering support: [Home-Start South Wiltshire]
