Why we need your help
Isn't it strange how the world has changed? Only a few months ago, life was going on as normal.
Now, with the UK in lockdown, we are staying home, trying to keep our families and friends safe by not going out.
Here at Home-Start, we recognise the pressure that this puts on everyone: it’s hard sharing limited physical space with people, even the ones you love, and the emotional and psychological effects of the lockdown will be felt for a long time to come.
And so, we have launched our ‘Giving Tuesday’ campaign. Every Tuesday between 7th April and 1st December we’ll be offering a new activity for you to try. Some will be free to access – our gift to you! Others will be paid-for activities, which will form part of our fundraising activities. We’ll use our fundraising to keep Home-Start running so that we can offer support to local families who are finding life a struggle.
The campaign forms part of the UK-wide “Charity Unites Us” campaign, run by the global movement “Giving Tuesday,” which seeks to celebrate the work of charities all over the world. More information on this campaign can be found here: https://www.givingtuesday.org.uk/charityunitesus/.
We have tried to find a range of options that will suit people of all ages, and we really hope you enjoy getting involved (you can find links to each week’s activity below as they are published).
