Home-Start Chelmsford, is a local branch of the national voluntary organisation, with charitable status, in which volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families with young children under stress in their own homes helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown.
Home-Start Chelmsford provides services to a family with at least one child under five years of age. Caring for children, particularly the under fives, is not always easy and can, at times, be very stressful. Most parents can recall days when they would have liked to chat things through with a friend or to have someone to provide that extra pair of hands. Home-Start Volunteers, mostly parents themselves, understand very well that need and are ready to offer help and friendly flexible support. Home-Start Chelmsford is committed to a policy of equality of opportunity which respects the identity, rights and worth of each individual.
Home-Start - Chelmsford is responsible for raising all the funds required to run its family support service, so we make no apologies for quoting from the Home Start - Chelmsford web site
