Cuts Watch #190: Home Start services

10 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Local Home Start services, local family sypport charities that support parent volunteers to assist other families that are struggling to cope, are reportedly facing funding crises. Children and young people now have identified seven Home-Start services that are already closing due to withdrawal of council funding, including NE Warwickshire, Swindon and Rotherham.  Home-Start UK chief executive Kay Bews said some of the 340 local Home-Start services, which each exist as small independent charities, face “dire financial circumstances”.
