Mulberry Chartered has formed a new partnership with one of the leading family support charities in the UK. Home-Start is made up of a team of volunteers who help families with young children deal with challenges they face. They help to support parents who are learning to cope by improving their confidence and help to build better lives for their children. Across all four nations of the United Kingdom, 16,000 volunteers support 30,000 families and 60,000 children to transform their lives. There are over 260 local, independent Home-Starts. At the heart of each Home-Start’s work is home visiting volunteer support.
It costs Home-Start just £1,500 to recruit and train a new volunteer; to put another volunteer on the doorstep of a family facing tragedy or hardship; to be there for the mum or dad struggling to face another day; to ensure thousands of children have the safe and happy childhood they deserve. We are proud to be partners of Home-Start and will continue to support the charity and all of the hard work that they carry out on a daily basis.
