About us

Home-Start Knowsley is a voluntary organisation offering support to local families who are facing difficulty and have at least one child under the age of eleven.

How we can help

A trained volunteer offers friendship as well as practical and emotional support. This is done in the family home and enables the family to cope with the pressures they  are facing, and can help to reduce any crises.

Individual support by trained volunteers

Volunteers support families and their children in a way the family finds most useful. This could mean time to talk, help with the children, providing a break for parents, practical help, reassurance or even the chance to meet other families.

Other Support

We run a Families Fit for Life programme three times a year which is an 8 week course to promote health and wellbeing. Occassionally we offer an 8 week Parenting Course, with a creche facility, for parents who want to explore and enhance their parenting skills. If you are a parent or carer of a child under the age of 11 and are experiencing some difficulty, and would like to know more about how we might be able to support you please call us on 0151 480 3910 or send an email.
