Save Home-Start Slough

Home-Start Slough is urgently appealing to individuals to become Friends of Home-Start by giving a monthly donation, organising fundraising events or financially sponsoring its running costs.

The charity, which has been going for 19 years, is on the brink of closure thanks to heavy cut backs for local government sources, the health care sector and large funders.

Without Home-Start Slough, more than 70 children a month will fall into a hidden society where they could be subjected to neglect, suffer due to their parent’s poor mental health or be a witness to domestic/sexual violence. We help more than 100 families every year, and the work we do makes sure that, in the long term, children and their parents live on to have happy, healthy and safer lives.

It costs in the region of £180,000 a year to keep this vital family charity going, which enables us to train volunteers to help desperate families with children under five-years-old in the town.

The families we help come from all races, religions and financial backgrounds – no one is immune to some of the biggest challenges life can throw at us – it can happen to anyone and that’s why we need your help TODAY.

To become a monthly donor, please click here to go to our Localgiving page, or call us on 01628 661029 to discuss setting up a standing order.

Help us break the cycle of families falling apart – give a child a chance and donate today.

Thank you. Every penny you donate is not only much appreciated; it’s vital to leading children on a new, happier course in life.
