"The best thing about Home-Start is that you never feel alone. In my very difficult times I knew I could trust and call my worker. She helped me with almost everything; if she didn’t know something I was always sure she would look and call me back, as she always did. Thank you very much."

"As a named person for many families within Aberdeen city, I would like to express my gratitude for all the help that Home-Start Aberdeen has given the families I visit. All families have been very appreciative of the support, whether this has been in the form of helping them with routines within their family home, children’s behaviour issues, accessing local services or preparation of meals to name but a few. Most of all, Home-Start has helped many mothers improve their confidence which has, in turn, made their children more confident."

"I breathe a sigh of relief when I know it is the day the volunteer will be visiting. She is like a granny to us".
- Family member

"Without the help of the voluntary services, the health visiting service would not be able to cope…Voluntary services such as Home-Start are very much part of the core service for young families and therefore need to be sustained."
