Following her visit to Home-Start North East Worcestershire last Friday (June 29th), Rachel Maclean, the MP for Redditch County, has praised the help and support the charity provides for families in Redditch.

Every year the charity, based on Easemore Road, helps hundreds of families by reducing family isolation, strengthening parent-child relationships, improving parents’ physical health and emotional well-being and increasing access to health, education and community services.

The dedicated staff at Home-Start North East Worcestershire also support parents in Redditch through home visiting, family and specialist groups and through social events.

And Rachel got to see the charity’s work in action during her visit last Friday. She was able to talk to mums about how vital the help and support they receive from Home-Start is.

Rachel said: “The help and support Home-Start provides families with in Redditch is absolutely vital and that was clear to see during my visit last Friday.

“It was great to be able to chat with the mums at the support group and to hear first-hand how Home-Start has helped them and their families.

“As the town’s MP I will do everything I can to support Home-Start’s work as it is an essential service for families in Redditch.”
