Welcome To Home-Start

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.

The earliest years make the biggest impact; Home-Start makes sure those years count so that no child’s future is limited.
Home-Start HOST volunteers support families with individual one-to-one home-visiting and a wide range of targeted support for parents and their children. We work primarily in Tameside and Glossop, Oldham, Stockport and Bolton.
