About Home-Start Birmingham North West
Home-Start is one of the UK’s leading family support charities. We help parents to build better lives and better futures for their children. We have been supporting families for over forty years right across the UK and on British Forces bases in Germany and Cyprus too.
We believe that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children the best possible start in life and helping them to achieve their full potential.
In an ideal world there would be no need for a charity like Home-Start. All parents would be free of the stresses and strains of raising their children. But for many parents the pressures of family life are simply too much to cope with alone. There can be so many reasons for this; poor mental health, illness and disability, poverty, isolation and lack of family support networks, the list is endless. We want to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to raise happy and healthy children.
Across Birmingham there are six Home-Start charities working in diverse communities throughout the city, Home-Start Birmingham North West covers Sutton Coldfield, Kingstanding,Perry Barr and Oscott. Our main office is located in Kingstanding.
