Home-Start North Dorset is an independent registered charity that supports struggling families living in the North Dorset District Council area and where there is at least one child under five.
Family life can be hard and challenging for many parents. Loneliness, relationship breakdown, bereavement, physical and mental illness or even multiple births can have a profound effect on families. We believe that the best possible start in life for a child begins at home with their family. Strong families raise happy children. Happy children grow up to be better parents.
With your help, Home-Start North Dorset can be there to help parents cope, to help them towards independence and a better future.
Everyone needs help at some time in their life... so please, help us to make a difference to a child's life today.
We are funded by charitable trusts, funds, district and county council grants and local fundraising, enabling us to provide this service at no cost to families.
