Who are we?

Home-Start Teignbridge has been operating in the Teignbridge district of Devon since 1989, supporting families who are struggling to cope with a variety of challenges, including post-natal illness, budgeting on a low income, disability, isolation, the stressful demands of young children, bereavement and multiple births.
