Home-Start Central Lancashire is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents and children when they need us the most because we know that childhood can’t wait.

Home-Start works with families in communities right across Central Lancashire. Starting in the home, our approach is as individual as the people we’re helping. No judgement, it is just compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

Families struggling with post-natal depression, early childhood development, isolation, challenging behaviour, physical and mental health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around three hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

Home-Start Central Lancashire also provides up to date training for volunteers and parents, supports families practically and emotionally to increase their capacity to cope with and enjoy life events such as Christmas and school holidays, and helps families to access and engage with other agencies and support.

Key Unlocking Futures-South Ribble Drop in Service

Drop In Services for young people in South Ribble. This service is for young people aged 16 to 25 who are thinking about leaving or have left home for whatever reason, we can help. Many young people come to us in a crisis when they have nowhere to stay and that is fine but people often don’t realise that it is good to seek help earlier so we can explain what a young person’s options may be.

 The Drop In Service is wide ranging and we offer practical and emotional support for young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Young people would normally drop in without an appointment but at the moment (due to Covid 19) if we receive a referral or enquiry, where possible we would contact them on the phone. We are still seeing young people at our centre in Leyland (using goverment guidlines) where this is not possible.

We also provide an Emergency Response Service. The emergency responders are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to visit you if you are in need, or if we cannot confirm you are safe following an activation. Our responders will get to you within 60 minutes, although our average is normally 35 minutes.

Progress Lifeline can also monitor people outside of the home with our GPS device which can be worn as a pendant or a key-fob. The GPS device, named The Footprint can provide extra reassurance inside and outside the home or if a person does not have a telephone line they can use this for connection to our Alarm Receiving Centre.

Offices are open Monday to Friday 9-5pm

Alarm Receiving Centre is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
