Home Link Family Support
Our volunteers visit families with pre-school children, at home, to provide practical and emotional support. We work in Edinburgh and Midlothian. Families want help to get out and about; need an extra pair of hands to help with a new baby plus their toddlers; or are facing stressful issues and need someone neutral to talk it through with.
By being a good listener, a volunteer can gently build up parents’ skills and self-esteem. Volunteers also help families to get engaged with early learning, so every visit will involve some reading or playing with the children.
