Home-Start Glasgow North is a voluntary organisation set up to
increase the confidence and independence of families with at least one
child under five years old who are experiencing difficulties.
We support families over the North West and North East areas of Glasgow, having recently expanded to cover the North East following the receipt of statutory funding for the purpose.
We select, train and support volunteers who:
- Visit families in their own homes
- Offer support, friendship and practical assistance
- Encourage the parents' strengths and emotional well-being for the ultimate benefit of the children
- Encourage families to widen their network of relationships and
to use effectively the support and services available within the
The scheme currently has 8 members of staff. Our volunteers are
people from different backgrounds and of different ages, but all have
parenting experience. Volunteers are carefully selected for their
friendliness, practical approach and understanding.
Contact us for further information or if you would like our support or would like to volunteer.
