We are a voluntary organisation that offers friendship, support and practical help to parents with young children in their own homes. This is a free service supported by our funders.

Our area of operation is Marlborough, Pewsey, Calne, Devizes, Chippenham and Tidworth and their surrounding villages. Families are introduced to us through a number of avenues including Health Visitors, the Army Welfare Service, Parent Support Advisors or you can approach us directly by completing a Self Referral Form.

We recruit and train parent-volunteers to provide support which is tailored to the individual needs of each family. Our volunteers visit once a week in the home to for up to six months to offer a valuable skilled listening ear, so that parents themselves can find constructive solutions to the problems they are facing. We have also recently begun offering group support to serving military and veteran families.
