Home-Start Lorn has been supporting families in the area since 1988. Our Home-Visiting volunteers, who are all parents themselves, offer friendly, practical support to families with at least one child under five years of age.

Who do we work with?

We support families in an area stretching from Appin to the North, Ardfern to the South and Bridge of Orchy to the East.

We have supported more than 400 families since the first volunteer was ‘matched’ to a family in 1988.

Home-Start Lorn requires all Home-Visiting volunteers to attend our Preparation Course, normally one day a week for 5 weeks. On-going training and support is also provided on a regular basis.

We are a Registered Charity and have recently become a Company Limited by guarantee, this means our Management Committee now go by the grand title of ‘Board of Directors’. However, they too are volunteers and give generously of their time to ensure the scheme is well managed. Home-Start UK offers excellent training for Board Members.

As Home-Start works with some vulnerable families, all volunteers and staff are required to have ‘Enhanced Disclosures’. These are free for all volunteers.
