Thank you for a wonderful, kind Volunteer; just someone reliable; just needed someone to be there for me and my babies when I felt exhausted; knew I had a lifeline of a Co-ordinator to talk to; cannot thank Home-Start enough for the help you have given my family; if I wasn’t going back to work, I would Volunteer NOW

Mum at end of support





We have been providing support in the North of Glasgow for over fifteen years and are delighted to have received funding to bring the Home-Start service to Lanarkshire.

Although managed by Home-Start Glasgow North staff and Board, we will ensure the support we offer in Lanarkshire is connected to local services and tailored to the needs of individual families.

You can support this new, and much-needed service, by volunteering to provide support to a family VOLUNTEERING or making a donation BT Donate HSGN



Our new service will cover Bellshill and Viewpark initially, areas identified in partnership with Health & Social Care professionals. We are engaging with other services and charities in the area to see where we can best work together to support families experiencing difficulties.

Amanda Arkell (pictured left) is an experienced member of the current HSGN team who will be introducing the service in North Lanarkshire.


Most referrals to our service come from Health and/or Social Care professional on agreement with families, however parents can also self-refer for support.

All referrals are assessed to ensure that the support we provide is the most effective and appropriate. We are also able to signpost to other organisations and services where relevant.

If you would like to self-refer please contact the office on 01698 442 883 or email Bellshill@homestartglasgownorth.org.uk


We rely on volunteers with parenting experience who, after completing our Training & Assessment Course, will provide support to a family. Volunteers are carefully matched by our Family Support Co-ordinator who also provides ongoing guidance for our volunteers.
