20 Years of Home-Start Colchester

Home / News / 20 Years of Home-Start Colchester

Celebrating 20 years of supporting local families.
The recent AGM brought together two scheme managers, Linda Watts employed in 1993 and Shelley Henderson current manager 2014.

It was unbelievable that the scheme still had volunteers recruited and trained by Linda 20 years ago!  Still committed to supporting local families.
The foundation and frameworks set up in the early days has ensured the scheme has continued to offer a much needed service in the local area!
Linda talked about the first grant from the Lottery in 1993 and setting up the first preparation course.
Everyone attending the AGM was moved by an emotional speech from a mum who had struggled though illness withactively  engaging with her son and appreciated Home-Start support when she needed a little support.
