Being a parent has never been easy.  It can be lonely, frustrating, and heart-breaking and overwhelming.

Parents supporting parents – our volunteers work alongside families to give compassionate and confidential support, tailored to each family.

Our volunteers are trained and given expert support from the team at Home-Start East Lothian.

We work with families in a range of ways and use the approach they think will give them the best support.

All our services are based around the principle that volunteers offer no judgement, just compassionate, confidential help, and support.
