What Parents Say

“Although I am still constantly facing various challenges and have to fight for what I believe is right for Oliver I am in a much more stable place emotionally and feel I can face things head on. I am so very grateful that Home-start was able to step in at the time they did and particularly pleased we formed such a strong bond with our volunteer Alison. The last 5 years with Oliver have been a rollercoaster ride but I am a much stronger person again for having had Home-start and Alison support us on our journey.” To read Rachel and Oliver’s full story click here
