What difference will you make?

Home-Start believes that all children need a happy and secure childhood, and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life, helping them to achieve their full potential. Through the offer of support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children, we support parents to grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links within the local community. We have helped more than 400 families since we were formed in 1982 - and we continue to grow year on year. Our trained volunteers' support is informal, friendly, and confidential; delivered through carefully selected and prepared volunteers, who are parents themselves. Being a part of the Home-Start Northampton team means making an active difference in a child's early years. You will be instrumental in ensuring we get the right support at the right time, and that other agencies and partners are aware of the services we provide. Your role will play a vital part in ensuring Home-Start Northampton is front of mind for young families needing an extra hand at a difficult time.
