Home-Start Barnet

We provide volunteer based practical and emotional support to families with young children living in the Borough of Barnet and Harrow who are experiencing difficulties. As part of our holistic approach to parenting, we also run family groups, play therapy for children who have experienced DV, parenting programmes, money smart to educate the whole family on making informed financial decisions and organise trips and outings to ensure children living in poverty do not miss out on fun experiences.

Founded 1997
