Home-Start Central Bedfordshire is your local Family and Children’s Charity. We have been supporting families who are struggling to cope in the area for over 30 years. We believe that every child deserves the best start in life. As such, our team of over 100 Bedfordshire volunteers has provided support to over 2000 families with more than 4500 children in Biggleswade and across the county!
We welcome parents and grandparents to be a part of our team and charity. No qualifications are required, all you need is parenting experience. Whatever your reason for wanting to volunteer with us, we welcome you to join us. Furthermore, we will do our best to help you achieve your personal goals and enjoy your time volunteering.
