About this cause
Home-Start is a children's charity and empowering family support service, built on trusted relationships and rooted in the community. We are a local family charity that offers emotional and practical support to parents with at least one child under 12. Our team of trained volunteers visit families in their own homes, building trusted relationships and providing support that is tailored to the family's individual needs.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Home-Start is embedded in local communities. We use local volunteers to support local families. Parents gain greater confidence and self-esteem, leading to improved emotional health and wellbeing, for both parent and child. Volunteers help families to access other services, enabling parents to gain strong social networks, which in turn helps to build stronger communities.
