Home-Start Richmond Upon Thames
Who we are
We are Home-Start Richmond, the local branch of the national family support charity which currently supports 1 in 237 families in the UK. Parenting young children can be difficult at the best of times but when you have other issues or problems to cope with as well, it can become overwhelming. This is where Home-Start can help.
What we do
Last year we supported 250 families with over 500 children in the borough of Richmond upon Thames and from October 2016 we will be developing our service in Kingston Borough too. We have about 100 home-visiting volunteers who are trained to support families (with at least one child under 5) who are experiencing difficulties such as post-natal depression, isolation, disability of parent or child, bereavement or a combination of factors that impact on their children’s development. Help us to support parents to give local children a better start in life. For more information, please visit www.homestart-richmond.org.uk or follow us on Twitter (@HStartRichmond), or Like us on Facebook.
Your gift, however large or small, could help us to reach more vulnerable children and families in Richmond and Kingston. Families who, through no fault of their own, are struggling to provide their young children with a positive start in life. It costs Home-Start just £10 to make an initial visit to assess a family's needs and £25 a week to support a family. We would really appreciate your contribution.
