Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support. We help families with children under five with practical and confidential support.
Being a parent can be lonely, frustrating and overwhelming. Home-Start is there for families when they need it the most, because childhood can't wait.
The earliest years make a big difference. Home-Start helps to make those years count, so no child's future is limited.
Welcome to Home-Start in West Northamptonshire
Home-Start in West Northamptonshire is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under five years of age and living in the Borough of West Northamptonshire. Home-Start in West Northamptonshire is a consortium comprising of two existing charities, Home-Start Northampton and Home-Start Daventry and South Northants. Both are now working closely together to provide even better services and support to families across West Northamptonshire.
Volunteers offer regular support, friendship, and practical help to families, under stress, in their own homes, preventing family crises and breakdown.
Our support is informal, friendly, and confidential; delivered through carefully selected and prepared volunteers, who are parents themselves. Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play a crucial role in giving their children a good start in life, helping them achieve their full potential. Through the offer of support, friendship, and practical help to parents with young children, Home-Start in West Northamptonshire supports parents in growing in confidence, strengthening their relationships with their children, and widening their links within the local community.
