Case Study: Homestart UK

Who are Homestart UK and what do they do?

HomeStart UK logo

Homestart UK was founded by Margaret Harrison in 1973 and is now one of the leading charities in the UK working with families in need. The charity offers a range of support to families who are struggling with the demands and challenges of being a parent.

They recruit family support volunteers, all of whom have experience of parenting and want to get involved in charity work. They undertake a thorough training and assessment programme and continue to have ongoing training and supervision throughout their time with Home-Start.

The service we provide

We have a long history of providing free and subsidised paediatric first aid training to the volunteers for this organisation which in turn allows them to have confidence in the homes of the families they support whilst looking after the children and babies.

Our work with Home-Start Herts began in 2012 and have been delivering impactful first aid training for them ever since. We have since expanded our work into Cambridgeshire.
