About Us

“Amazing charity close to my heart that supports families with all different needs and challenges! You are all wonderful at Home-Start.”

A Home-Start family

Home-Start believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents and carers play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them to achieve their full potential.

We provide a unique service; recruiting and training volunteers who themselves have parenting experience, to work with families in their own homes, building supportive relationships and responding directly to the family’s individual needs.

A network of Home-Start charities throughout the UK offer support within local communities , to help children to get the best start in life. Each local Home-Start  is independently funded, managed locally and has the support of our national organisation Home-Start UK. Home-Start Rochdale and Bury has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and welfare of the entire family.

Being a parent has never been easy. It can be lonely, frustrating, heartbreaking and overwhelming. All parents struggle at one time or another. For some, the challenges can be greater, this can be for a range of reasons, including poverty, poor mental health, isolation, domestic abuse and lack of family support networks. 

Home-Start’s volunteers work alongside families  to give compassionate and confidential support. We help people to regain the confidence to be the parents they want to be.

The support Home-Start volunteers give is non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential.
