Across the UK more than 15,000 Home-Start volunteers visit families at home each week, supporting parents in situations as diverse as isolation, bereavement, multiple births, illness, disability or who are just finding parenting a struggle. They provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support and help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope. Home-Start runs more services and has more volunteers supporting more families than any other family support charity in the UK.

Our Vision

Home-Start Northampton cares about families.  We provide quality voluntary support, professionally managed for parents with children under 5. We work in partnership with families to develop confidence, positive relationships with their children and to widen links within the community.
