Home-start Arun (covering Arun, Worthing & Adur)

Home-Start Arun is part of one of the leading family support charities in the UK - covering the districts of Arun, Worthing & Adur in West Sussex. We believe the best start in life for a child begins at home with their family. What goes on inside a family strongly determines the opportunities and life chances children have. Children who are raised in a stable, loving, family environment are more likely to have a positive and healthy future.
