Portsmouth Home Start

Home-Start Portsmouth is an independent family support charity. We are here to enable parents in Portsmouth to be the best parents they can be for their children by offering them friendship, mentoring and practical help through volunteer support in their homes and family groups in the community. We were established in 1992 and have been going from strength to strength ever since. Today, over 200 families receive support from us every year.

We are part of a huge national network of Home-Start schemes. Across the UK more than 15,000 Home-Start volunteers visit families at home each week, supporting parents in situations as diverse as isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness, disability or who are just finding parenting a struggle. They provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support and help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope.
