Get support

We work with you to build on your strengths and give you the support you tell us you need.

Ways to volunteer

By volunteering just a few hours a week you can transform the lives of young children and their parents in your community.

Why fundraise for us?

A child’s earliest years are the most important. Home-Start wants to make sure those years count. Can you help us?

We have joined a National challenge to complete 50 things to celebrate 50 years of Home-Start supporting families across the UK.

All money raised will go towards Home-Start Shepway being able to offer vital support to families with complex needs and without us will not receive the support they need!



With thanks to our supporters
