Home-Start is the UK's leading family support charity
Home-Start Trafford and Salford supports families going through difficult times by providing volunteers who visit them regularly in their own homes.
We offer a unique service: volunteers are recruited, trained and carefully matched with families (living in Trafford or Salford who have at least one child under the age of five) to offer support, friendship and practical help in the families' own homes. Our volunteers, who are usually parents themselves, offer friendly, informal, non-judgemental and confidential support for as long as is appropriate.
Parents supporting other parents – it’s a simple idea that really works!
Home-Start Trafford and Salford is a voluntary organisation operating as a Charitable Company and is strategically managed by a Board of Trustees which is made up of members of the local community.
We are supported by Home-Start UK www.home-start.org.uk and work in partnership to complement and enhance existing family services in the Borough of Trafford and in the City of Salford.
Home-Start UK was established over 35 years ago and is the UK's leading family support organisation, working with over 21,000 families and 48,000 children a year. The sister organisation, Home-Start International, was founded in 1998 to provide similar informal, friendly, family support across the world.
