Striving to make a positive impact on the lives of the children and families we support; appreciating the strengths of every family - Because childhood can't wait.
Home- Start Northampton is a local charity, supported by a national organisation, Home-Start UK. We deliver support to families with young children, in their own home in a sensitive way. We train and support volunteers to deliver this service and they are appropriately matched to each family. Home-Start Northampton was set up in 1982 and continues to work across the town of Northampton. Home-Start schemes operate in other areas of Northamptonshire and Home-Start Northampton works with them to promote the wider organisation. Funding comes from a number of sources that include grant making charitable trusts. Volunteer trustees have strategic responsibility, delegating day to day management to the manager.
