who we are ?

Home-Start Havering & Redbridge is an independent charity which is part of the Home-Start UK network.

We help families with young children through a combination of home visiting support, group support and social activities. We aim to help support families who may be struggling with a variety of challenges, including post-natal illness, disability, isolation, the demands of parenting young children, bereavement and multiple births; helping prevent these difficulties from escalating into crisis, and crisis developing into family breakdown. 

Last year 22-23 we supported:


we are there for parents when they need us the
most because childhood can't wait

Parents often face challenges and difficulties throughout their journey of raising children.  Home-Start is readily available to provide practical and emotional support to families in Havering & Redbridge, helping them in overcoming their most challenging periods.
