Welcome to Home-Start Kingston!

We hope that you will find our site useful and informative, but if you would like more information on anything, please contact us and we will answer your questions as soon as we can.

  • Home-Start UK is a voluntary organisation that supports families experiencing difficulties. Our focus is young children and early help and our work with families includes children up to 11. 

  • We work by recruiting and training volunteers, parents themselves, to support families experiencing difficulties in the family's own home.

  • Home-Start Kingston is the local scheme of a national organisation, and we have been working across the borough of Kingston upon Thames since 1994. In that time have worked with hundreds of families and many hundreds of children.

  • We endeavour to support as many struggling families with young children as possible through our valuable and much sought after volunteer support workers.
  • Like many other charities, we are struggling to find adequate funding and are subsequently running a reduced service.
  • We are striving to meet the challenges we face and would welcome support with our fundraising efforts.
  • If you would like to raise money for us, have skills in preparing bids, or just lots of money (!), we would love to hear from you.

Parents helping parents – a simple idea that really works.
