Home-Start has been working with volunteers to offer parents the support they need to give their children the best start in life. At the heart of our service is the offer of support and guidance from one parent to another – a deceptively simple but incredibly powerful approach through which we have made a lifetime of difference to more than one million children in the UK.
In 2014, Home-Start helped 30,000 families and 63,000 children. To do so, more than 15,000 volunteers gave over a million hours of their time to support other parents struggling with often overwhelming pressures and difficulties.
Home-Start’s Impact report  we learn about these volunteers and the tangible benefits of volunteering with Home-Start for their lives and the communities in which they live. As the report shows, volunteering for Home-Start is good for the people who do it, boosting not only their health and wellbeing, confidence and self esteem, but building their skills and offering those who want it a route into employment.
