Annual Review

Autumn Newsletter 2021


Our core service and the very essence of Home-Start is around offering holistic family support. We work primarily with local families who have at least one child under 11 years old.

By working alongside the parent we can offer guidance around parenting, boundaries and support with emotional issues caused by the pressures of parenting and family life. As part of this support we can also assist with more practical issues such as encouraging families to widen their social networks, help with getting to appointments and resolving everyday issues and problems.

In addition we recruit and train local people to become volunteer Mentors who are then able to work alongside the staff team and visit families weekly to provide support with their particular needs.

Each family is offered an initial meeting and assessment of needs and a bespoke package of support is agreed with the family.

Working Forward


Home-Start Thanet is delighted to announce the launch of a new programme of early intervention - Babble Chatter Talking Matters. This is in partnership with Home-Start Dover and Home-Start Sheppey.

The programme is designed to offer support for children aged 0-5 with their language, social and emotional development. We will be working with families to encourage non-verbal children to communicate, using sounds, visual games, songs and gestures.  We will be offering weekly home visits for up to 6 weeks. 

This programme is funded through the Reconnect County Grant and is open to families with a child aged between 0-5.
