Home-Start Surrey to showcase our work with families

SliderAdd2

On 6th October 2016, Home-Start Surrey will be premiering its new documentary film at an early evening event at the World Wildlife Fund Headquarters in Woking.  The film, part of Home-Start Surrey’s Building Better Futures campaign, showcases the difference that our family support charity is making to the lives of families and children living in communities throughout Surrey.

There will also be an exhibition of observational photo-essays that depict individual local family stories – including one family who has been supported by Home-Start in Waverley.  The photo-essays describe the inspirational journeys that these families have made with the help of their local Home-Start volunteer and the positive outcomes of our early intervention approach.

If you are working for an organisation that may be interested in helping to support Home-Start’s work in Surrey in some way, please apply for a ticket to the event by emailing admin@homestartsurrey.org.  You’ll hear more about the impact that Home-Start is having throughout the county and discover ways in which you and your organisation can support us to expand our reach to even more parents and children who need us.

The Building Better Futures event is funded with generous support from the Lottery’s Awards For All programme, and Sally Marks, Chairman of Surrey County Council and Patron of Home-Start East Surrey.

The Discovery Foundation funds Home-Start in Waverley

We are delighted to announce that The Discovery Foundation, supported by Santander, has made a generous donation of £4,850 to Home-Start in Waverley. The money will be used to fund a 9 week training course to prepare our home-visiting volunteers for their role in providing parents with the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.  The funding would not have been possible without the support of Santander’s Godalming branch.
