Home-Start West Berkshire is an innovative and unique family support charity, respected within the community for our ability to make a difference to families’ lives. We have been operating in West Berkshire for over 20 years and in the last year alone we supported over 350 disadvantaged children. Our aim is to empower families to cope with their challenges early, reducing the need for more greater support later on. Trained volunteers offer emotional and practical support on a one-to-one basis within the family home. Families using our service may have encountered barriers to accessing support, suffering multiple disadvantages such as poverty, physical or mental ill health, abuse or isolation.
Home-Start West Berkshire has led from the front on issues such as Postnatal Depression, delivering interventions since 2010. Our ability to build trusting relationships with hard to reach groups speaks for itself. At the start of support, 10% of our families are subject to Child in Need or Child Protection Plans, 77% of families report feeling unable to cope with their mental health and 15% report feeling stress caused by conflict in the family with 9% acknowledging domestic abuse.
Need for our service increases daily and our charity funding struggles to keep pace with the demand. We need your help so we can continue to offer support to families in need and expand our service!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
