Who do we support?

Are you having difficulty coping with the stresses of life bringing up a young family?

If you live in our area map and have at least one child under five, we may be able to help you.

What do we offer?

We offer support through our network of volunteers who offer emotional and practical support for 2-3 hours a week. Our support is flexible and responsive to your needs and can include:

  • being a listening ear or someone to talk to
  • helping and playing with your children
  • reassurance
  • help to find out about and access other local amenities and services
  • encouragement and motivation
  • practical help

Ready Steady Learn

To help manage the transition to school, Home-Start Buster’s Ready Steady Learn programme can support families to develop the key skills and abilities their children need to be ready for starting school.


We also run two Family Groups, one in Petersfield and one in Clanfield, where families with at least one child under 5 can meet in a safe and friendly setting.
