Home-Start Hampshire


Home-Start Hampshire can offer support to anybody that has at least one child aged 0-11 years, or is expecting a baby. The regular support can be provided in the home, in a group, or occasionally both.

Home- Start Hampshire supports families for a variety of reasons: They may be feeling isolated in their community, have no family nearby or be struggling to make friends. They may be finding it hard to cope because of their own or their child’s illness or disability. They may be struggling with the emotional and physical demands of having several young children. They may have complex needs that can impact on the childrens’ well-being, e.g. domestic abuse, debt, drug or alcohol misuse, poor living environment, etc.

To make a request for support, you can complete a referral form or simply contact the local office (the Hart & Rushmoor office).

Home-Start Hampshire run the following activities:
- a mental health well-being support group for parents with a diagnosed mental health condition on Mondays at the Aldershot Garrison Community Hub 10am-11:30am.
- a stay and play group at the Elizabeth Hall in Hook on Wednesdays from 10am -12noon for families living in Odiham, Hartley Wintney and Hook.
- family groups which are by invitation only. The groups are well supported by volunteers and a play worker who will ensure you and your little one(s) have a good time with plenty of play and craft activities.

About Home-Start Hampshire

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births.
That’s when parents need support. That’s when Home-Start Hampshire can help.
This support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.
