Charity description

Home-Start Southern Oxfordshire logo
Home-Start Southern Oxfordshire is a voluntary home-visiting scheme. We recruit and train volunteers to offer support and friendship to vulnerable families. We want to see a society in which every parent has the support they need in order to give their child the best start in life. COULD YOU SPONSOR ONE OF OUR VOLUNTEERS EACH MONTH TO ENSURE THAT EVERY FAMILY GETS THE HELP THEY NEED?

Our volunteers work with families in their own homes to help them cope with the stresses and strains of bringing up a young family when things get tough. Strong families raise happy children. YOUR HELP COULD ENSURE THAT OUR VOLUNTEERS CAN DELIVER THIS SUPPORT.

Our fabulous volunteers are not paid for the work that they do. They claim only travel expenses only. A DONATION OF JUST £8.50 PER MONTH FROM YOU WILL KEEP ONE VOLUNTEER ON THE ROAD FOR ONE MONTH. CAN YOU HELP?

A regular donation will ensure that we can match a volunteer with every family that is referred to us. Your help can and will really make a difference. PLEASE CLICK ON THE “DONATE NOW” BUTTON AND MAKE A MONTHLY DONATION OF £8.50 TO HELP US SUPPORT FAMILIES LIKE ZARA’S : (name changed to protect identity)

“I developed severe post-natal depression and was hospitalised for 3 weeks in a specialist mental health mother and baby unit. I felt overwhelmed by the idea of establishing a new life with a new baby in a new area where I knew very few people. Home-Start’s support has been brilliant and has made a huge difference, knowing someone will be there for me and my daughter week to week. I suspect it's also played an important part in my recovery. I am hugely grateful for the timely, tailored and compassionate support I've received, which has undoubtedly made a significant difference at a time of my life when I have been most in need.”
