So, what do Home-Start BFW do? Home-Start is a local charity that help parents and children, just like you, when they need a helping hand.

It might be that a child needs an extra bit of support to learn, or the parents need some extra support with their toddlers.

If you want to read more, here is our website: https://homestartbfw.org.uk/

So, why do we do it? Many families are running on empty and the pandemic has been super tough on those already struggling. Just like school moving to home schooling temporarily, We have moved our important services on-line to continue our support and stay connected with families.

On a positive note, we have seen communities coming together and we want to keep the spirit of helping each other alive by encouraging everyone to get involved in our fundraising campaign Can you be our Hero?
