supporting families & local communities in Calderdale

Welcome to the Home-Start Calderdale website!

Home-Start Calderdale supports families across the borough who have young children. All our families have recognised that parenting is a really hard job and that they just need a little bit of help.

We support families who are struggling with a variety of issues including family breakdown, illness or disability, lack of confidence, loneliness or simply lots of small children! All our trained volunteers have parenting experience themselves – they’ve been there and got the t-shirt!

A volunteer can bring the fun and love back into a family with kindness, patience and a good dose of humour.
