She was made aware of how Home Start peer groups had been struggling to meet in person due to the lockdown, but had been working over zoom and phone calls. Single mothers such as Irma Martus, 47, and Carol Elliot, 41, spoke to Kate about how they had been helped out with regular weekly calls from Home-Start Wandsworth, Mirror reported.
According to a survey, around two-thirds of mothers are not confident that they can get the help they need for mental health, given many have been unable to speak to GPs or their family during the course of the pandemic. Kate asked them, "Does it help emotionally too? You feel less judged?"
"Everybody needs to have those friendships. It must be difficult to meet up socially-distancing," Kate said. Irma, who had been referred to Home-Start after her 22-month-old son Emmanuel was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome said, "She said she was passionate about support for single mums through peer support." Carol shared, "I said my volunteer calls me every week and they feel like a proper friend and she said everyone needs friends."
Home-Start has been helping to provide support to parents for around 47 years now. It is reported that the organization helps to provide a local community of trained volunteers and expert support for families with young children. The volunteers help families in dealing with issues such as postnatal depression, isolation, physical health problems and bereavement. They spend around two hours in the homes of the family, supporting them however they need.
During a separate video chat meeting with eight organisations to speak about helping parents with young children, Kate praised parents who have worked hard to create support systems for their communities during these unprecedented times. On the call, Kate had shared, "A huge well done to all of you, I know there’s a big team of you out there in communities across the country. Both William and I hear about how vital these relationships are to families — they’re a real lifeline. So to you and your army of volunteers out there, a huge well done. I, like you, would love to see peer-to-peer support more embedded and celebrated in communities and society as a whole."
