Objectives

We are an established family support charity, linked to the national Home-Start UK umbrella body, but independently financed and governed. We help families with young children who live in the Harborough District in South Leicestershire, and who are facing difficulties from illness and disability, to finances and housing. We help around 100 to 150 different families every years, and have a large team of around 30 volunteers who are engaged in direct contact with families, as well as a voluntary Trustee Board. Together we help families to overcome difficult situations and crises, build their relationships with each other, and help parents to give their children the best possible start in life.

Activities

We provide help through a range of projects and services including one to one support at home or in the community from a matched volunteer, group support for parents and their children to attend together, courses for parents to help them improve their parenting and family lifestyles, and a counselling service for parents.
