The Home-Start Approach

All Home-Start charities are rooted within the community they serve. We are managed locally but receive support by a national organisation Home-Start UK which offers direction, training, information and guidance and ensures consistent and quality support for parents and children.  They do not provide us with financial support.

Home-Start has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and welfare of the family.

Home-Start East Sussex are proud to follow the Home-start UK ethos:

  • Choice
  • Openness
  • Flexibility
  • Partnership
  • Encouragement
  • Responsiveness
  • Good Communication
  • Respect
  • Trust
  • ……..and Enjoyment

Home-Start, like other childrens’ charities in the UK, understands the importance of early intervention. What makes us different is the variety and scale of support services we offer. Home-Start helps local families with children living in poverty, children with disabilities, families who have experienced abusive relationships, and much more. We protect children’s vulnerability and benefit the good of our community as a whole.
