Margaret Harrison Travel Bursary

Margaret Harrison Travel Bursary

An exciting opportunity to travel and learn!

The late Margaret Harrison, founder of Home-Start in 1973 was a strong believer in sharing best practice and it helped her spread Home-Start from Leicester to other locations. It was Margaretís wish that, at a memorial event to celebrate her life, a collection should be taken in aid of a travel bursary enabling a national or local Home-Start, either in the UK or elsewhere, to learn new ideas taking place in one or more other communities.

Margaretís wish has been honoured and a Travel Bursary in her name presents an exciting opportunity for national and local Home-Starts across the world to travel and see first-hand some of the amazing and creative family support and early years initiatives that are taking place both in Home-Starts around the world and also in the wider public, private or third sectors.

Whether you are planning to share your learning through short films, photo stories, blogs, Tweets or Facebook posts or a mix of these is up to you. We would like to hear how you would share your learning with other Home-Starts, so that they can benefit from your findings.

If you are a Home-Start employee, volunteer or trustee and interested in visiting a local or national Home-Start, or any other charity or public/private body, and you wish your visit to be funded either in full or in part, please click on the following link for more details!
