Here for young families
in Barnsley, Rotherham & Sheffield

What some parents may see as a 'simple trip out to the shops' for a parent who has triplets in tow can seem impossible.

Home-Start South Yorkshire supports parents  who are dealing with issues such as isolation, sickness, disability, mental health, domestic abuse, twins/triplets, or difficult relationships.

We can help these parents to feel that the 'impossible' is possible!

One parent described Home-Start as 'ARMBANDS IN DEEP WATER' because we offer a lifeline to parents who feel overwhelmed and in desperate need of support, reassurance and friendship.

Could you volunteer 2-3 hours per week to help change a local family’s life?

Home-Start South Yorkshire is looking for new volunteers to start its March and April training courses. Volunteers don’t need any qualifications – just parenting experience and to be friendly and committed.

Home-Start has been improving the lives of local families for 33 years. Over 100 volunteers help 800 parents and children a year. These volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families. This support reduces isolation, builds confidence and improves parenting. Volunteers make a huge difference to families’ lives right across South Yorkshire.

We are holding various volunteer courses in March & April (Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley) and have places available.

You can apply on our website
or please call the office for more information 0114 2788377 (Sheffield) or 01226 245985 (Barnsley).
