Welcome to Home-Start Wessex

For 28 years, we’ve provided family support to local, vulnerable and disadvantaged families with at least one child under five. Now they need us more than ever.

In the last year we helped a record 402 families, our highest ever with a 63% increase and demand continuing to rise.

We are working hard to keep up with demand and help the local families that need us, but we can’t do this alone. We need your support.

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?
