Home-Start Kirklees

Charity description

Home-Start Kirklees logo
Home-Start Kirklees is a family support charity, offering volunteer support to families in Kirklees with children under the age of 5.

We provide a unique service - recruiting and training home-visiting volunteers to support stressed and/or vulnerable parents with young children at home.

We are part of a national network of Home-Start schemes around the UK. Each scheme is run locally and is responsible for raising their own funding. Home-Start Kirklees has been operating since 1999, and we have helped over one thousand families since then.

We offer practical help and emotional support to any family in Kirklees who have at least one child under five. The families we help are struggling to cope because of a range of problems such as ill-health, disability, mental health problems; debt or housing problems; family breakdown; parents may have a learning disability, or be very young parents, with no supportive family. In addition, families may also have experienced a multiple birth, be new to the area, or be socially isolated. Our volunteers really do make a huge difference to families and the way they are able to cope.
