Warm and safe project

Many families with pre-school children have been hit hard by the impact of the COVID-19 within Essex. Home-Start Essex want to reach out to families to give them extra support to provide added security and reduce loneliness, through the uncertainty of this pandemic.

We are pleased to be funded by Essex County Council to provide extra support for 0-5’s during a 6-month period from 1st December 2020 until 31st Sept 21.
