Home-Start in Waverley

Charity description

Home-Start in Waverley logo
Home-Start in Waverley supports and mentors any family in the Borough of Waverley with a child under the age of 5.

Home-Start in Waverley supports families facing difficulties who have at least one child under the age of 5. Help comes in the form of a home-visiting volunteer, themselves a parent who knows and understands only too well the pressures of family life and can offer 3-4 hours help each week. Home-Start has operated in Farnham since 1998, we opened in Haslemere in 2003, expanded to Godalming in 2011 and in 2013 have pushed our reach as far as Cranleigh so we now cover the entire Borough of Waverley. We have helped over 500 families and 1200 children to achieve a good independent and productive life. We work increasingly with children who are on Children in Need plans to avoid them needing to be sent into care. It costs approximately £20,000 a year to put a child in care, it costs us only £1500 a year to support a family.
