Coronavirus(Covid–19) Update

Further to Government advice given on 16th March 2020 the decision has been made to temporarily halt our “normal” offer to local families in Wokingham until further notice.

From today (17th March 2020), our trained Home-Visiting volunteers and staff will no longer be visiting families in their homes. Our two family groups, based at Brambles and Ambleside will be closed until further notice.  We will remain in telephone contact with the families that we are currently supporting.

This website will remain updated as and when the situation changes in line with Official Guidelines.

Supporting ordinary parents going through extraordinary times

Parents can feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if we have little support from family and friends when we need it most.

Some of us, desperate to do the right thing to give our children the best start in life, find we’re fighting against the odds.

Are you finding parenthood a real struggle because you’re having to cope with isolation, or depression, or your own or your child’s illness or disability, or relationship issues, or twins or triplets? If so, you need support. Home-Start Wokingham District can help.

Home-Start has been described as ‘ARMBANDS IN DEEP WATER’ because we offer a lifeline to parents who feel overwhelmed and in desperate need of support, reassurance and friendship.
