How you can help us
Home-Start Spelthorne currently receives statutory funding from Surrey County Council and Spelthorne Borough Council but we are responsible for raising all the funds to make up the shortfall required to run our home-visiting family support service. Our shortfall is currently £26,000 per year. The competition for funding has always been fierce and is even more so now due to the current economic climate. This has necessitated Home-Start Spelthorne searching for new avenues of funding. There are various ways in which you can help contribute financially to our charity.
We are always happy to offer help and support to individuals or companies looking to hold fundraising events on our behalf. From tea parties to quiz nights to sponsored walks, all sorts of different events can be a way of raising funds to support our work. If you have any great ideas about fundraising events please contact us!
