Can we help?

Are you a Knowsley family with at least one child under the age of eleven? 

Do you feel that a little bit of extra support in your home would help?

Home-Start Knowsley trains volunteers to provide one to one support in a family home; this could be as simple as just having someone to chat to, or having someone to help and support you.  It could be something such as coping with multiple births, being new to the area, not sure what community facilities are available to you. Whatever your needs are, if you feel that some additional support would help you, then you need to contact us.

Our support is informal and is NOT STATUTORY!  

We don’t check up on you, but will identify and advise you if we find there are any risks. We may signpost you on to other services, but only to ensure that you receive the best possible package of care.
