About Home-Start

Home-Start is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under five years of age.

Who we are

Home-Start Daventry & South Northants is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under five years of age and living in the Borough of West Northamptonshire.

Home-Start Daventry & South Northants is part of the Home-Start in West Northamptonshire consortium which comprises of two existing charities, Home-Start Northampton and Home-Start Daventry and South Northants.

Our volunteers offer regular support, friendship, and practical help to families, under stress, in their own homes, preventing family crises and breakdown.

Our support is informal, friendly, and confidential; delivered through carefully selected and prepared volunteers, who are parents themselves. Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play a crucial role in giving their children a good start in life, helping them achieve their full potential.

Through the offer of support, friendship, and practical help to parents with young children, Home-Start Daventry & South Northants supports parents in growing in confidence, strengthening their relationships with their children, and widening their links within the local community.

What we do

With the help of volunteers, Home-Start Daventry & South Northants offers support, friendship, and practical assistance to local families. We are committed to making our service as accessible as possible to the many diverse communities we work with and to families who find it difficult to reach out for support for themselves, for whatever reason. We work in partnership with families to develop confidence, positive relationships with their children and widen links within the community. We ensure that the resources are sustainable and of the highest quality to provide our services to families and support volunteers.
