Host a book swap party to support us!

Our A Book and a Brew campaign is back!

Join us throughout the Summer to help raise awareness across the Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow boroughs and host a Home-Start book swap party. It’s a fun and easy event to host, with three simple steps:

  1. Invite your friends for a brew (or some bubbles!)
  2. Ask them to bring 1 or 2 books to swap and, if they want to, give a small donation to us
  3. Raise awareness and funds of the charity

It’s a great way to de-clutter and revive your book shelves in advance of any Summer holiday you have planned.

If you’re interested in hosting a book swap party for Home-Start, please contact Claire Leonard by emailing here , or calling 020 8487 8500, and she will send you a party pack containing everything you need. Parties should take place between June and September, but feel free to host at another time that is convenient to you.

Free volunteer course in Kingston, April to June 2018

If you have some free time after Easter, and you are a parent or grandparent, you could help other families with pre-school children. We are offering a free course to train you to be a home-visiting volunteer, supporting families with difficulties such as post-natal illness, bereavement or disability.

Our next course will run at the Kingston Quaker Centre on Wednesdays, 9.30am – 2.30pm, from 25 April to 13 June (excluding half-term). It can be accredited to NVQ 1 or 2.

After the course, you would visit a family for 2-3 hours a week. For more information, please contact Angie Ahmed on 020 8487 8500 or email info@homestart-richmond.org.uk
