New Chosen Charity 2019: Home Start

Published on 28th Feb 19

The first 5 years of a child’s life are fundamentally important; they are the foundation that shapes their future growth, health, happiness and development. Yet we know life is complicated and when a crisis hits and support is not available, the devastation experienced by children can last a lifetime.

None of us are immune to the factors that lead to troubled lives; post natal depression, job loss, isolation, health problems, bereavement, divorce - to name a few. Each of these can be debilitating, but when more than one hits, it can feel insurmountable and for those parents who have no support, they may struggle with the demands of young children.

Being parents themselves, Home-Start volunteers can avert crisis and provide a listening ear and helping hand. Working with families in their own homes to develop the strength, confidence and skills to nuture their children and give them the best start in life. With your help we can support more families.
