WHAT IS HOME-START? Home-Start offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children, in local communities throughout the UK and with British Forces in Germany and Cyprus. Home-Start offers a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers who are usually parents themselves, to visit families at home who have at least one child under 5 and offer informal, friendly and confidential support. To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

Foundation is a charity based in the north of England that helps some of the most disadvantaged people in society. Often the people we help are ignored by others , their friends and family have given up on them, they have nowhere to live and are feeling desperate. Foundation provides non-judgemental support to people who have experienced homelessness, drug problems, domestic abuse, mental health problems or have experience of prison and offending. We offer a wide range of specialist services to help socially excluded people from these groups to gain full independence in settled accommodation. They are then able to address their health problems, find work and participate in their local community. Over the past 30 years we have helped more than 40,000 people to settle in their own home and to turn their life around. Paul from North Yorkshire was homeless after serving a prison term and the breakdown of his marriage. Foundation supported him in finding new local accommodation and to develop skills for work. He now works as a Foundation volunteer and reflects that: “Foundation was there for me when other people turned their back, and I will always be grateful.” Your donation will enable us to continue to help socially excluded people to turn their lives around and offer them a new route to independence and achievement in their lives.
