About Us

Home-Start is a voluntary organisation in which volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to young families under stress in their own homes, thus helping to prevent family breakdown.

Home-Start Spelthorne is a local charity set up in 1996. Home-Start Spelthorne has continued to grow and fulfil a need within our local community. We are affiliated to the national organisation Home-Start UK, but are independent, autonomous and responsible for our own management and for raising our own funds. Home-Start UK provides advice and support together with a stringent Quality Assurance review process to ensure the scheme operates effectively.

The charity is run by a board of Trustees who are volunteers from diverse backgrounds with particular skills and an interest in children. Our Trustees are responsible for the management and direction of the scheme.

Staff and Trustees

There are four members of staff, together with a network of trained volunteers who carry out the home-visiting parent support service.
