Their newly launched Rainbow Project funded by WCVA's Voluntary Emergency Services Fund, is directed at families with children under the age of 11, which will see them expand their services to reach more families.

As well as rolling out more remote support, the funding will enable them to safely establish a doorstep delivery service providing vital food and supplies to families that are stuck at home with limited opportunity to access the basic items they need.

Home-Start Cymru successfully moved to remote support for existing families in advance of the lockdown and continue to receive new referrals into existing projects.

They recently surveyed a number of their families and unanimously they cited the following as their main challenges in the current situation

• Mental health;

• Accessing food/supplies (including free school meal vouchers).
