Local Community

A strong network of contacts

The support provided by Home Start Leith & North East Edinburgh (HSLNEE) enhances the work of its local community partners including Dr Bell’s Family Centre, Home Link Family Support and First Hand Lothian.

The boundary that HSLNEE covers is the three Neighbourhood Partnership areas that form the East Sector of Edinburgh comprising of Leith, Craigentinny / Duddingston and Portobello / Craigmillar.

The friendly support of our team of volunteers and our partners is free, confidential and non-judgemental.

However, this support is not a substitute for professional services and the best results for families are achieved through an active partnership between statutory agencies and HSLNEE.

Over the years our agency has built up a strong network of contacts which allows families to be supported and signposted to the most relevant organisation to meet their individual needs.
