About Us

Home-Start East Lothian is a free, confidential home befriending service for families with children under 5 years of age who live in East Lothian.

Find Support

All kinds of families can find it hard to cope for all sorts of reasons, maybe because of the illness or disability of child, post-natal illness, bereavement or loneliness. At Home-Start we support any parent with at least one child under the age of 5 who asks us for help. Our supported families, like our volunteers, come from all walks of life.


Home-Start volunteers can support local families in a number of ways, using their unique skills and experiences to help them cope. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and help out in hundreds of different ways.
