Welcome to Home-Start Horizons

A child’s earliest years make the biggest impact on their future. Home-Start makes sure those years count so that no child’s future is limited. We want to see a society inwhich every parent and carer has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.

We support families who have a least one child under five who may be dealing with issues such as:

  • Social isolation
  • Domestic abuse
  • Lone parenting
  • Poverty
  • Illness and disability
  • Post-natal illness
  • Coping with several children under the age of 5

Please take a moment to browse through the pages of this website to find out more about our service, how to become a home-visiting volunteer or how you could offer your time by becoming a trustee of the charity.
