Home-Start Richmondshire was established in April 2010. It is a grass roots organisation - founded by local people, with volunteers from the local community supporting local families.
We are part of Home-Start UK – a leading family support charity and an organisation valued and trusted by families and professionals alike. We want every parent to have the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life. Hundreds of local schemes have been supporting families since 1973 and the breadth of expertise and knowledge gained over the years makes Home-Start what it is today.
We train volunteers to visit families in their own homes to help them through a difficult time. All our families have at least one child under 5 years old. Visits can be weekly and are normally for 1 - 3 hours long, dependant on the families need.
