Charity description

Home-Start Chichester & District logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. Home-Start Chichester & District provides support and friendship to vulnerable and isolated families.   Through informal and confidential support, we aim to improve the emotional and physical wellbeing of families, parenting skills and the opportunities for young children to thrive, particularly for those aged five and under.   

The charity has a team of fully trained and supported volunteers who are carefully matched with a family depending on their skills and the family’s needs. Examples of support that a volunteer may give, range from helping with menu planning for healthy eating on a budget, taking children out to play and encouraging parents to make use of local amenities such as the toy library and nurseries as well as signposting them to other support networks such as debt counselling or Citizens Advice Bureau

We maintain a team of 50 – 60 volunteers who provide a much needed support and befriending service to families who have at least one child under the age of five years.  Volunteers are trained for a day a week over an 8 week period and are then matched with a family who they visit each week for a couple of hours at a time.

The more volunteers we train, the more families we can support.  We are non government funded and rely on the support and generosity of people like yourself.
