How We Can Help

Home Link Family Support offers a wide range of helpful services aimed at building family relationships, increasing self-confidence and relieving stress levels.

  • Befriending – visiting a family at home. For families with at least one child under 5.  In Edinburgh and Midlothian
  • Systemic Family Counselling– a form of counselling for the whole family together at home, in Midlothian. For families with children 0-18

This is what families say about us:

  • "Having a volunteer allows me to look at other ideas which helps me understand life better."


  • "My Home Link volunteer really understands me, and that is what I like."


  • "I like seeing mummy smile. You always make mummy smile now." Eddie, aged 4


  • "The Big Bedtime Read made me feel very proud. I wanted to shout from the roof to let everyone how proud I was of being in the DVD. It helped me to recognise what a good job I was doing with my child. It has really helped with Kyle’s speech and language and the nursery told me he was doing brilliantly."
