Home-Start Stroud District is a local charity which supports  parents who are going through challenging times located in the Stroud District of Gloucestershire and we are currently developing our service in Quedgeley & Kingsway in Gloucester.

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if they have little support from family and friends when they need it most. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also having to cope with issues such as post-natal depression, their own or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple birth.

That’s when parents need support.

That’s when Home-Start Stroud can help.

A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience themselves, regularly visits a family, in their own home, offering emotional and practical support through difficult times for as long as it is helpful or needed. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.


Please take a moment to browse through the pages of this website to find out more about our service, how to become a home-visiting volunteer or how you could offer your time by becoming a trustee of the charity.

Maybe you could make a donation, join our fundraising initiatives “Easy Fund Raising”, “Give as you live” or hold a fundraising event on our behalf. Follow our Fundraising link to find out more.

Here's a great activity for little ones under 3. Simply tape craft sticks to a tray and let them get to work! Great for fine motor skills and lots of fun for them too! 👍🏻 Adult supervision is suggested and activity is best for little ones who have stopped putting everything in their mouths. Get craft sticks here >> amzn.to/2t09LSI (affiliate)
