Are you a Parent in need of Support?

Home-Start Carmarthenshire may be able to help you by offering you a volunteer if you:

  • live in the Carmarthenshire area.
  • have one or more children under the age of 14
  • are in need of a little extra help

There are many reasons why you may need us.  Perhaps you are:

  • feeling isolated, maybe with no family nearby and struggling to make friends
  • suffering with post-natal depression and maybe finding it hard to talk to anyone about it
  • finding it difficult coping with your child’s illness or disability
  • being affected by the death of a family member
  • struggling with the emotional and practical demands of twins, triplets or children under 14
  • finding it hard to cope with relationship difficulties
  • feeling exhausted or depressed
  • coping with your own illness or disability
