Can you Help?

Home-Start Mansfield is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under 5 years of age.  Our volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families under stress in their own homes in an effort to prevent family crisis and breakdown.

We have been visiting and helping Mansfield families since August 1986.  Our area covers the same boundaries as Mansfield District Council.  We have two part time organisers who co-ordinate over 40 home visiting volunteers, all of who are parents themselves.

Home-Start Mansfield is a registered charity and relies on the support of many private individuals and small businesses to continue to provide support for mums with postnatal depression or those feeling isolated.  We offer assistance where we can but unfortunately our core funding doesn’t cover all our costs.

Could you help us?

We are happy to receive any donation.  Whether it be the gift of your time to help us carry on supporting families facing difficulties, or a monetary donation to help us pay for the training of a volunteer.  We also need people to volunteer as Trustees or become members of our voluntary management committee.

In short we need your help to enable us to help other families who feel that they need a little extra support.  It costs us an average of £1,500.00 to provide support and friendship to 1 family for 1 year so if you can help please do.  All donations will be used to help and support the families of Mansfield.

As a charity we produce an annual report where many of our activities are highlighted.  Why not download a copy of our annual report.
