We believe every child and parent deserves the best chance in life. However, behind many closed doors, there are families with young children suffering bereavement, redundancy, relationship breakdown, disability, illness, loneliness and depression. These crises affect the children as well as the parents, and when no one is there to help, the effects can last for years. Home-Start Butser volunteers change lives by supporting these families during times of crisis; they walk through the door and provide vital support.  

You can be a lifeline for a family in crisis too. With your help we can say yes to the next family in crisis.

It doesn't take much:

  • £2 a month helps an isolated mum get out of the house and make new friends at a Home-Start Family Group.
  • £5 a month provides a child with one to one support from a volunteer.
  • £10 a month helps provide a volunteer with the training they need to support a family in your area.
  • £20 a month helps fund a Home-Start Butser Co-ordinator to give professional support to up to 80 families and 60 volunteers each year.
