Celebrating 30 years supporting families in 2018

Home-Start Kennet has been fortunate to have been nominated by the Mayor of Marlborough as one of his chosen charities for this year, and will be holding a 30th Anniversary Celebration on 20th January 2018 in Marlborough Town Hall.

This event is to acknowledge the support given to local young families over the past 30 years and to thank our wonderful volunteers, without whom we would not have been able to carry out this work. We will also be raising funds for Home-Start Kennet to enable us to continue with this much needed service.

We are actively promoting this event through the selling of event and raffle tickets. Tickets for the event £10 and Raffle tickets £1 each. As a valued supporter or friend of Home-Start Kennet, we hope you may be able to attend, and would be very grateful if you are also able to help spread the word to other colleagues and partners.

Please contact the office on 01672 569457 or homestartkennet.a@btconnect.com if you would like to purchase event or raffle tickets.

Home-Start Kennet (also known locally as HSK) is one of a network of 340 local Home-Starts in the UK. We are a voluntary organisation that offers friendship, support and practical help to parents with young children in their own homes.

We are celebrating our 30th year and work with families from all walks of life throughout Marlborough, Pewsey, Devizes and Tidworth and their surrounding villages. We have also now expanded our area to cover Calne and Chippenham. Families are referred to us through a number of avenues including Health Visitors, the Army Welfare Service, Parent Support Advisors or you can approach us direct by completing a Self Referral Form.

We recruit and train parent-volunteers to provide support which is tailored to the individual needs of each family. Our volunteers offer a valuable skilled listening ear, so that parents themselves can find constructive solutions to the problems they are facing. We are currently recruiting volunteers for a training course commencing March 2018. Please visit the Volunteers section of this website for more information.
