About Home-Start Leith & North East Edinburgh
Welcome to Home-Start Leith & North East Edinburgh:
Being a parent, whatever your age, background or other circumstances, isn't always easy. This, coupled with other pressures in life such as illness, stress or financial worries can make parenting even more difficult and overwhelming.
Home-Start Leith & North East Edinburgh have been based in Leith since 1985. Home-Start Leith is a registered charity managed by a Board of Trustees. Volunteers visit families once a week in their own homes.
All of our volunteers are trained over a 6 - 8 week period, are checked under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) legislation and have parenting experience. Home-Start Leith works with all families in need of support who have at least one child under the age of five.
The Home-Start Leith & North East Edinburgh team is friendly, approachable and caring. The team consists of a Senior Coordinator, a Coordinator, an Administrator, a Creche Worker and a team of Volunteers.
'Now I am involved as a Home-Start volunteer, I want to give back the good experience to another family. I appreciate Home-Start Leith because it changed my life.'
Myounghee Sur, Volunteer
