Some families don’t want or need one-to-one support from a family mentor but still need a bit of support. If this is the case, we are able to offer families support at one of our Family Groups.
There are groups currently running in Cheshunt, Hemel Hempstead, Letchworth, Hertford, Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City
The groups are run by Home-Start group leaders and trained volunteers. They run weekly all year round (except Hertford which is term time only).
The group activities and topics are based on principles from our ‘Big Hopes Big Future’ school readiness program. Through play and interaction, children develop social, emotional and practical skills, experience routine and learn basic independence skills, ready for nursery.
