About Us

Home-Start Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow is a family support charity whose mission is to give a supportive start to struggling families with children in those critical early years under the age of 5.

Through the home-visiting work of our volunteers we offer emotional and practical support to parents, guiding them through and building their resilience to the demands and stresses that parenting brings. Ultimately helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown. You can read further information about getting support from us here.

Our volunteers are at the very heart of what we do, and being parents themselves, understand the stresses. Once matched with a family they visit weekly and offer support tailored to meet the needs of the family, enabling the parents to confidently manage family life. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, visit our Volunteer page here.
