HOME START WANDSWORTH
I like supporting local endeavours and Home Start provide incredible back up for families in and around the Borough through mentoring, personal visits, and help with children under five.
When a family is referred to them, one of the Home-Start coordinators works with them to assess their level of need and then carefully matches them to a volunteer who can offer them ongoing, non-judgemental, compassionate support. Again, I have met some of these families and it is clear that this help is much needed and much relied on.
I had a wonderful lunch with Holly and Maria in Chelsea and in fact was able to top up this donation with the final remaining amount a few months later with Maria!
