Our Services - What We Do

group of trustees and volunteers300Home-Start Leith & North East Edinburgh (HSLNEE) has been helping families and providing training and opportunities for volunteers in the local area since 1986.
The experience and knowledge gained over the years has made HSLNEE a responsive, hard-working group of personnel committed to strengthening the family whatever its shape or size. During 2016-2017 a total of 140 children and 80 families were supported by HSLNEE with referrals from various sources including health visitors, social workers and self-referral.
HSLNEE is funded by the City of Edinburgh Council and benefits from the support of a range of companies, trusts, churches and schools, which is always greatly appreciated
As well as being part of the UK’s leading family support charity, it is an organisation valued and trusted by local families and professionals alike.
53 volunteers supported the scheme from 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017.
Volunteers undertake many different tasks in order to support, help and manage the scheme.
