Who we are

About us
Home-Start Barnet, Brent and Harrow is an independent charity that helps families with children through their challenging times. We are part of the Home-Start UK family; a national network of charities working in 71% of local authority areas across the UK.

We support families in the boroughs of Barnet, Brent and Harrow who are facing issues such as loneliness, isolation, financial difficulties, anxiety, post-natal depression, ill health, multiple births, or disabilities. We help them grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and forge links with the local community. 

Since opening in October 1997, we have supported almost 3,500 families (including more than 7,000 children) and have recruited and trained 563 volunteers from the boroughs we work in.   

Our approach
Early intervention can significantly increase a child’s chances of growing up happy and healthy, which in turn helps the wellbeing of their community and lessens the burden on local services.

Our core work is with families with (at least) one child under five. Trained volunteers visit the family once a week, supporting them in a variety of emotional and practical ways. We also work with families with older children by delivering parenting programmes focussing on strengthening parenting skills, such as positive discipline and confidence.
