supporting families & local communities in Calderdale

How does Home-Start make a difference to families?

Does what we do make a difference for the better?

The answer is yes! Home-Start Calderdale helps parents build better lives for their children.

Our recent report to our funders showed that families supported by Home-Start Calderdale are 

  • less isolated
  • more resilient
  • show improved mental and physical health
  • see improvements in children's behaviour and well-being
  • have less conflict in the family

We tailor our support to each family and their specific needs, and we work with the whole family, providing a package of support, comprised of emotional and practical support, activities with the children and help to access other services.

We offer a universal service to all families whatever their background and circumstances. Our service is rigorously and continuously reviewed through a quality assurance programme which is recognised by the Charity Commission. At our last QA Full Review we achieved 100% of the quality mark!
