We are your local Family & Children’s Charity, forming in Leighton Buzzard in 1984. Home-Start Central Bedfordshire believes that every child deserves the best start in life. For more than 30 years our local volunteers have offered friendship and support to vulnerable families with young children.For many, family life can be difficult. Especially when struggling with issues such as disabilities, postnatal illness, financial difficulties and bereavement.
By joining our team and volunteering in Leighton Buzzard, you can use your valuable parenting experience to help make fragile families stronger. Our volunteers offer advice, a shoulder to cry on and practical support in order to help families back on their feet. Together, we can give vulnerable children in your community a Home-Start.
