Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

Who provides this?

  • Home-Start Edinburgh West and South


The aim of this service is to work with referrers and families to introduce them to Home-Start Edinburgh West and South West (HSEW) and build a relationship with the parent/carer and their family in an environment where they feel safe.

Through one-to-one engagement and confidence building, the team can support your transition from home-based support to community and group activities.

Support is provided by a member of staff through one-to-one home-based parenting sessions that can include Peep learning together sessions (LTP), Peep progression pathway (PPP) and Baby Massage (BM) opportunities.

HSEW plan to expand this service to include provision by volunteers.

The service can include opportunities to help families use technology safely to access materials.
