Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.

Who does Home-Start support?

Since 1973, we have been tailor-making our support to help families with twins or triplets, where there is bereavement or illness, disability or addiction, or where there is mental ill health, or money or housing problems. In most cases, we help where families feel isolated and have no-one nearby to help.

Who founded Home-Start?

Tributes have been paid to Margaret Harrison, founder and life president of the family support charity Home-Start, who died last month aged 77. Harrison founded the organisation in 1973 and led it for 25 years. Today it supports more than 33,000 families and 70,000 children in 288 communities in the UK.
