Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support. We help families with children under five with practical and confidential support.
Being a parent can be lonely, frustrating and overwhelming. Home-Start is there for families when they need it the most, because childhood can't wait.
The earliest years make a big difference. Home-Start helps to make those years count, so no child's future is limited.

Welcome to Home-Start Slough
Home-Start Slough has been supporting local families going through a difficult time for the past 21 years. In 2019, our 60-strong team of specially trained home-visiting volunteers provided non-judgemental, life-changing support to over 100 vulnerable families in the local area.
In times of great difficulty and stress, our volunteers have been a vital lifeline for parents, giving them the confidence and skills they need to cope with their daily lives and enabling children to grow up in a happy and stable environment.
We are the biggest local voluntary organisation to recruit and train volunteers to provide support and a listening ear to struggling families with children under five.
It costs in the region of £180,000 a year to keep our scheme going and we receive no government funding.
