Kirklees Home-StartWelcome to Home-Start Kirklees Home-Start Kirklees is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of children. We offer practical and emotional support to families living in Kirklees with at least one child under the age of 5 and not in full time education. We recognise the ongoing challenges of raising our children in a safe and nurturing environment whilst coping with the stresses of ill health, isolation, disrupted relationships, insecure housing, financial insecurity, trauma, abuse and loss. Sometimes, we also just need someone to talk to, to be there to listen. Since 1999 our volunteers have been visiting families in their own home, offering unique, needs-led support and sharing their own parenting experiences and helping families to build their resilience to We also have a young parents project which allows us to offer further support to families in our community.
