supporting families & local communities in Calderdale

Welcome to the Home-Start Calderdale website!


It is with the greatest sadness we announce that Home-Start Calderdale will be closing on 31st March 2019.

Having delivered a vital and transformative service to families across Calderdale for almost 20 years, the Board of Trustees has been forced to take this action due to decisions by both Calderdale Council and the local Clinical Commissioning Group to no longer fund Home-Start. Despite many attempts to diversify our income stream over the last 2 years, we have been unable to secure enough appropriate funding to continue.

The Board of Trustees and staff team would like to offer immeasurable thanks for all the time and effort our volunteers have given to Home-Start. We sincerely acknowledge the invaluable hard work and commitment they have given to some of the most vulnerable children in Calderdale.

And finally, we would all like to offer sincere thanks to all our parents and children for welcoming our staff and volunteers into your home, allowing us to spend time with you and for letting us be part of your parenting journey. We wish you all the very best for the future.
