    The referral process

    Once we receive a completed referral, a coordinator will contact the family by telephone to book an initial home visit. During this visit, the family can discuss their needs and Home-Start will offer available services. If the family would like 1-1 support they will then be carefully matched to a volunteer or support worker who will visit them weekly. If the family prefer group support they will be signposted to the group that most suits their needs. The support provided to a family is reviewed for 3 months and is flexible to their changing needs.
