Welcome to Home-Start Leeds

Parents helping parents give their children the best start in life.

At Home-Start Leeds we offer a unique service for families who are experiencing difficulties while bringing up young children.

We know that being a parent isn't always easy and that life can bring challenges that get in the way of enjoyable family time.

To help parents give their children the best start, we harness the care, kindness and understanding of volunteers, people from all communities who are usually parents themselves. Our volunteers offer their time to support other parents as they increase their confidence and ability to cope and build better lives for their children and themselves.

The Home-Start approach has a proven, lasting, positive impact on the development of children and the health and well-being of the family.

Parents helping parents raise happy, healthy, safe and successful children.

Home-Start UK Quality Assurance Assessment

Following a three year self assessment process and a two day document review in November, the Home-Start UK Q.A team spent two days with us in January undertaking in depth interviews with a large number of our Trustees, Staff, Volunteers, Families and Referrers. Sincere thanks to all those who gave their time to meet the assessors.
Their report told us that we met 93% of all standard despite having been through three very turbulent years of funding, therefore we should all feel very proud.
Trustees and Staff have already begun work on those areas that needed improvement.

Investing In Volunteers Award

On 18th January the Quality Assurance Panel of Volunteering England approved the re-accreditation of our I.I.V. This award recognises the quality of our volunteers and their work. Our volunteers told the assessor that "Home-Start is like a family" and "They (the co-ordinators) have always got time for you and you have their utmost respect"
We are honoured to receive this award and thank all those involved. We promise to continue supporting and making all our volunteers' time at Home-Start Leeds as rewarding and enjoyable as possible.
