Home-Start Caithness - Inspiring Scotland

Home-Start Caithness

We recruit, select and train volunteers, who have parenting skills themselves, to provide a home-visiting service to families. The volunteers provide confidential, non-judgmental, practical and emotional support to help families deal with a range of difficulties from isolation, loneliness, poor mental health, disability, separation, low income and the associated stresses or who just want a little bit of support with their parenting skills. Our Family Support worker and Family co-ordinator also support individual families. During the Covid-19 pandemic we are supporting families by text messaging, phone and video calls, as home-visiting is not possible. Group support. Parenting classes for fathers.
