“Thank you for all your help … I would actually be lost without all the help you have given us.”
“When I arrived in Scotland to join my husband who is studying here from abroad I was referred to Home-Start by my health visitor they were the only people who helped me and have built up my confidence and helped me make friends here, they also provided clothing for my child from their Charity Shop which I am so grateful for”.
“Parent group has been amazing for me allowing me a day away from the kids to focus on myself and making friends. It’s been a massive support for me and I’m very thankful for everything home start do”.
“Homestart are doing things at my pace which is so so good as they aren’t pushing me to anything that I am not ready for and all I can say is that they are fantastic and they deserve so much recognition for the work that they do”.
“Confidence in a child is key, we are working extremely hard together to make sure my children will be confident and happy to talk about any feelings and to interact with other children/families”.
“Due to the support from coordinator I feel that my stress has decreased and this has had a positive impact on my children”.
“I never feel judged with things that are going on and I can off load feelings knowing that it is all confidential”.
“Save the children vouchers helped me get things for the house when I was leaving homeless accommodation this really helped as I could not have done the things without them”.
“I have now got a family support worker who is there to help support myself and oldest child in understanding each other so playing games has really helped build our relationship”.
"I feel with this support I have been able to face most challenges without feeling I need to end my life"
"Able to say no and no longer using alcohol as a crutch anymore"
"Made lots of new friends at group and they liked me for me"
"Friends I have made through the Home-Start group have been a great support to me and daughter"
"It’s good to know that everyone is there for you and even giving you that kick up the bum when you need it"
"On-going support from volunteer through text and phone calls, these calls lifted my spirit and I have really missed her company"
"I have now been accepted into collage which has always been my dream"
"Felt more confident I am now in paid employment which I would not have done in the past"
"Feel more confident that I can cope when challenged before I would have gone to pieces"
"I was so lucky having the right volunteer which helped me improve my life"
"Practical things like getting the school lunches, extra food delivered, activity boxes and weekly zoom sessions have been great. Helping me deal with the children when they have been difficult and not listening just being there and knowing I can pick up phone and a staff member will listen and help me"
"So grateful for the emotional support and door step visits. Being allowed to have contact via face time with both staff and volunteer has been fantastic during this pandemic. I enjoyed the zoom calls but due to my physical and mental health have not joined over last few weeks"
