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.

Home-Start Stroud District

If anyone is near Nailsworth today ...Really looking forward to this afternoon. We are at the Playcircle Spring Fayre. It's going to be amazing. Had a sneak look at the hall yesterday and it looks absolutely magical. There are tons of really talented people there such as the fantastic Wisps Wardrobe, Herringbone and Smuged prints and my absolute favourite (and my children's) Silly Science. I feel so honoured to be part of it all.

There is so much fantastic stuff to do and see. It will be such a brilliant event.
