About Us

Home-Start was founded in 1973 in Leicester by the late Margaret Harrison CBE, with the sole purpose of helping families with young children through times of crisis and stress, so that they can continue to care for their children. The idea spread quickly across the UK where today around 300 schemes are in operation.

Home-Start Worldwide was founded in 1999 in response to requests for help from individuals across the world. Inspired by the success of Home-Start UK, they wanted to establish Home-Start in their own communities.

Home-Start Worldwide, based in Leicester, plays a pivotal role in the development of the Home-Start service around the world. Through the work of the Trustees and through member to member support, Home-Start Worldwide aims to ensure quality standards and provide effective support to the network.
