Home-Start Cardiff offer practical and emotional support to families living in Cardiff. They offer support to refugee and asylum seeker families who have at least one child under the age of 11.

Volunteers offer 1:1 support to families who are struggling to cope with a variety of challenges, including post natal illness, budgeting on low income, disability, isolation, the demands of parenting young children, bereavement and multiple births. They help to prevent these difficulties escalating into crises which may lead to family breakdown.
