Service Description

Home-Start TH recruits and trains volunteers from the local community to provide emotional and practical support to parents who live in the Borough of Tower Hamlets and have at least one child under the age of 5. By vsiting a family in their own home and offering friendship, Home-Start volunteers represent a lifeline for many families who are struggling to cope with social issues such as isolation, depression, multiple births, disabilities etc.
