Big Give Christmas Challenge Week for Home Start Banbury
and live on Freeview channel 276
Being a parent has never been easy. It can be lonely, frustrating, heart breaking and over-whelming. Many struggling families are often isolated with nowhere to turn to for support. • Rural or social isolation • Post Natal Depression • Poverty or financial difficulties • Domestic abuse • Relationship problems or a single parent • Substance abuse • Feeling overwhelmed, exhausted or unhappy • Inadequate housing • Poor mental or physical health.
All these are problems we at Home Start encounter with our families and we aim to help them to cope.
Our core work is our home-visiting service. A volunteer visits a family in need on a weekly basis and this support continues for as long as it is needed.
Our volunteers offer non-judgemental, confidential, compassionate emotional support and practical help.
We run 3 weekly term-time drop-in play sessions. By intervening early, we are able to dramatically improve family situations and create better environments for the children to develop and thrive, giving them the best 'home-start' in life.
This week is the BIG GIVE week where any donation will be matched up to our target of £10,000.
