Self Referrals

Many parents need advice, support and friendship during the early years of parenthood.

Home-Start has always helped families by providing practical and emotional support in the home where there is at least one child aged 5 or under, but the Home-Start Croydon’s new project, Home-Start Direct funded by the Big Lottery,  is there for those families who would like to contact us themselves.

The support will still be provided by a trained volunteer who will visit you in the home for 2-3 hours a week, once a week, to provide emotional and practical support. The positive aspect of Home-Start Direct is that the family will be able to express their needs firsthand which can help to increase access to support.

If you feel that you would benefit from support from us please call on 020 8667 0207 and ask for either Paula or Tracy. Alternatively, you can email or complete the enquiry form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please note we are only able to support families who live within the borough of Croydon and who have at least one child under the age of 5 years.

All information on this form will be treated in the strictest of confidence and we will not pass any information onto other organisations.
