Who we support

Family of five playing about

Home-Start Slough supports any family where there is at least one child under the age of five. Our support is provided by volunteers and is free, confidential and non judgemental.

Over the past three years, Home-Start Slough has helped 440 parents, with more than 90 per cent of them reporting significant benefit and change in their lives from the support received from their volunteer.

Additionally, 97 per cent of families who no longer need a volunteer, have developed their own support networks and are able to use existing services.

We support:

  • lone parents
  • married or unmarried couples
  • grandparents caring for grandchildren
  • step parents
  • adoptive parents
  • foster parents
  • families where a parent is in the armed forces
  • families where a parent is in prison
  • families where social care or other agencies are involved
  • in any location, or for any gender, ethnicity or asylum/immigration status.
