Your gift will help to provide friendship, emotional support & practical help to local families and children in need. We have supported over 4000 families since we began in 1999.

We support any family living in Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, and Hammersmith and Fulham who needs us, providing there is at least 1 child under 5 or a baby on the way. Rich or poor, settled or transient; there are times when we all need support and friendship but do not know where to turn. Our trained and DBS checked volunteers provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support to parents with diverse needs, enabling and encouraging them to make positive change in their lives.

We believe parents are the first and most important educators of their children. With holistic, personalised support, parents are better able to be involved in their children's development, support children's learning, promote positive behaviour and healthy choices, and provide safe, stable homes.

Our Impact:
"I have an absolutely amazing, loving wonderful soul volunteer that comes and see me to help me. The volunteer made my life a lot better, less stressful knowing that I have someone there to talk to"
"Volunteers from Home-Start are supportive with good experiences, they are making my life to go easier, smoother and less stress."
"I feel empowered by the volunteer's constant encouragement."
"It was a relief to know someone was there when I was struggling and alone with my twins."
