Welcome to Home-Start Kettering Area

Supporting families with young children

Home-Start Kettering Area

Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. The benefits of our support include improved health and well-being and better family relationships.

Our volunteers visit the family's home for a couple of hours every week. They tailor-make their support to the needs of the parents and children. Volunteers are very committed and will keep visiting until the parents feel they can stand on their own two feet. Parents and volunteers often develop a deeply trusting relationship which can lead to powerful change within the family.

Snowflake Appeal

When parents suffer tragedy and hardship, children can suffer for a lifetime.  So we launched our Snowflake Appeal to support vulnerable children in the Kettering area.

A snowflake was chosen as the symbol of the appeal because each one is as unique and fragile as the children Home-Start supports.

Our annual appeal raises funds to help support local children and their families.

Over the last 40 years, Home-Start has helped keep a million children safe and happy through its team of trained volunteers working directly at the heart of each family.

What can you do to help our Snowflake Appeal?

  • Make, decorate and sell buns or biscuits decorated as snowflakes to raise funds - this classic fundraiser has been known to raise up to £300 in one afternoon.
  • Do a sponsored event.
  • For the very brave - shave your head and have the Snowflake Appeal snowflake shaved in the remaining hair.
  • Crochet or knit snowflake decorations to sell.
  • Do snowflake nail art to raise funds.

There are many more things you can do.

"It is important to stop and think about those families who have a very difficult time.  For the last couple of years I have been working hard to raise awareness for Home-Start, a remarkable charity for which I have become an ambassador. Their Snowflake Appeal raises vital funds for the amazing work they do with vulnerable children and families. This is a fantastic organisation and whether you volunteer, fundraise, or make a donation there is no better thing to do for those children who won't have a good start in life."
