Home-Start Wigtownshire provides weekly home visiting support from support workers and trained volunteers to families with at least one child under 5. We offer practical and emotional support. This can be: listening, signposting to local services/ resources, accompany to appointments, help with routines, guidance, peer support. We also run 5 family groups throughout Wigtownshire, including a Dads Group. The groups are facilitated by a project worker and volunteers also help. The groups provide a range of activities for parent/ child in a safe and welcoming environment such as: arts/ crafts, storytelling, music, outdoor activities and guest speakers. The project worker can also liaise with other agencies on behalf of the parent.
