Geographical remit: 


We offer friendship, practical support and emotional advice to families living in Dorset who are having difficulties managing parenting for a variety of different reasons such as poor mental health, postnatal depression, disability, domestic abuse, bereavement, isolation, financial hardship and multiple births.

Our mission is to give children the best possible start in life, by supporting parents so they grow in confidence, strengthening and enjoying their relationships with their children and widening their links with the local community.


We work directly with families by providing them with a Home-Visiting Volunteer who'll work with each family on a case-by-case basis to support them where they are with a wide range of issues as listed above.

We also run a number of groups in the local community, both drop-in and referral-only.
