About Us

Our Mission

Home-Start Kennet offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children in our local communities.  Our trained volunteers visit families at home and offer them informal, flexible and confidential support.  Home-Start Kennet helps parents give their children the best possible start in life.  Our work with families at times of difficulty promotes family resilience and improves children’s life chances.
