Founded in 2000 we are a small, local charity supporting families with children under five in the North-West and South-West of Edinburgh.

Our services provide support, friendship and practical help to parents, with the aim of also helping children to get the best start in life.

We do this by offering home visiting support alongside access to groups.

Many parents need help, friendship and support during those early years when children are young. Being a parent isn't always easy especially if you are also dealing with some of the pressures life can send your way like illness, stress or financial worries. We understand that raising a family can sometimes feel overwhelming and offer friendship and support to families with young children at home.

Anyone with a child under 5 can contact us or ask another agency involved to complete a referral form.

All help is free and confidential.

Our services are coordinated by a small friendly team of staff and volunteers and we have a dedicated team of Trustees who give freely of their time to oversea the service development and financial management.
