Home-Start Barnet was selected for The Summer Give 2016 campaign – designed by The Childhood Trust to alleviate the impact of child poverty during the summer holidays. This meant any money we raised between 16th and 18th May 2016 was potentially doubled and went towards a Money Smart coordinator to support low-income local families to take control of their finances and change their lives. The matching period is over, but you can still click on the icon below to make a donation or Find out more………
Home-Start Barnet charity provides a unique service in Barnet and Harrow. Our trained volunteers – usually parents themselves – visit families with at least one child under 5, and provide informal, friendly and confidential support. Find out about all of our services offered to families in Harrow and Barnet.
As part of our holistic support to children and families we also offer:
Family Group Support
Home from Home
We run a twice weekly family Drop-In session (Thursday and Friday mornings) on the Grahame Park Estate in Colindale. This has been running successfully for more than ten years.
Home-Start Barnet staff are trained to deliver a range of evidenced based parenting programmes. We can manage the whole process of putting together a programme or we can provide you with a trained facilitator.

We currently have 16 volunteers who are all trained by Home Start and are able to impart information about the services Home-Start can provide.
