About Us

At Home-Start, we provide families with support and guidance through the everyday challenges faced when raising children. We recruit and train volunteers, who are usually parents themselves, and then match the volunteer with a family.

Often, parents find themselves unable to cope with the stresses of everyday life when raising a child. We are a lifeline to many local families. Our volunteers are experienced local parents who wish to help other parents.

For a volunteer to visit you regularly in your own home, you need to have a child under 5. We have offered a unique, invaluable service to families since the first Home-Start scheme was set up in 1973.

Home-Start Bolton

Home-Start Bolton was founded nearly 24 years ago as an independent charity by parents and practitioners who wanted to provide support for parents during the formative years of a child's life.

Home-Start Bolton is managed by independent trustees who raise funds locally and ensure we work to national quality standards.

What we offer our families

Families need support for many different reasons;

We recognise that each family is unique and will have differing needs; they may be none of the above.
