Home-Start Camden is delighted to announce that the Big Lottery Fund has awarded the family support charity a four year grant of £413, 696. HSC Trustees were joined by local Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells for this announcement (see photo). This will underpin the work of Home-Start Camden to support families with at least one child under five who are going through a difficult time. The charity trains and supervises volunteers who visit families weekly to help increase parenting skills, confidence, reduce isolation and increase children’s and parents’ well-being.
Home-Start Camden are also very grateful to the Henry Smith Charity and John Lyons Charity, which are funding our family support work for three more years until March 2018. The three grants above will fund approximately 75% of our costs of the charity’s family support work and volunteer training programme to help prevent family crisis from escalating.
