Off to a meeting of people interested in getting a Home Start scheme going in parts of South Liverpool. It looks like we may be able to get at least some areas covered. Home Start is a registered charity which recruits volunteers who then visit families to offer some support. Its run at local level with each area having a committee and staff and recruiting volunteers locally. There used to be one in Speke/ Garston which closed a while ago. There is an existing scheme now based in Toxteth. I really hope we can make some progress - we all agreed to follow up various contacts and ideas.
