Home-Start Kirklees is a volunteer led family support charity, supporting parents with young children across Kirklees.  Peer Educators have young parenting experience and support group sessions that are attended by young parents aged 14-24 years.  Peer Educators are fully trained and supported by Co-ordinators whilst they are supporting group delivery.  Peer Educators are able to offer a listening ear and role model positive parenting to their peers as well as provide practical advice and emotional support.   We are unique in that we support families for as long as support is needed and it is making a difference.  We ask that peer educators commit to the role for a minimum 12 months to allow relationships with families to be built on trust and rapport.  Established in 1999, Home-Start Kirklees is affiliated to Home-Start UK.
