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.
Support is provided by the provision of home-visiting volunteers, group support, focussed project work and social activities; our work helps prevent a family’s difficulties becoming a crisis. Home-Start Teignbridge works closely with several local organisations, including midwives, health visitors and children’s centres, however Home-Start Teignbridge is not a substitute for statuary services, but is complementary to them.
