Thank you for visiting Home-Start Oxford's page on MyDonate.

Home-Start is one of the UK’s leading family support charities, a voluntary organisation offering support to families who have at least one child under five when family life becomes difficult. All around the country local schemes recruit and train volunteers to support families with young children at home.

Home-Start Oxford’s aim is to give every child the best possible start in life. The ethos
of the charity can best be described as ‘One parent helping another parent through a difficult time’.

Our service supports families, through weekly volunteer home visits, to deal with strains that can include parental mental health issues, isolation, postnatal illness, disability, bereavement, multiple birth, or domestic abuse.

Our trained volunteers and Family Support Workers provide tailored practical and emotional support to help parents and children build confidence, independence, resilience and community connections.

This early intervention service offers a gateway to many other community services and we work in partnership with them to improve the life chances of our
families and young children.
