Royston, Buntingford & South Cambridgeshire

About Us

We support local families with children aged 9 and under through tough times – providing highly-trained volunteers and expert support for parents when they need us the most.

Get Support

Being a parent can be lonely, frustrating and overwhelming. Our volunteers work alongside families to provide free practical and emotional support, which is compassionate, non-judgemental and confidential.

Donate

How your donation will support our vital work.

We are really sad that due to the current Coronvirus outbreak (COVID-19) we have ceased all face-to-face home visiting and family support group activities. We are continuing to support families by phone and video link, where possible.  Families can still contact us on: 01763 262262, at admin@hsrsc.org.uk or via our contact form.

Community support is especially vital at this time:

  • You can donate here
  • Let your friends & family know about us by social media etc. so they can donate.
  • And please don’t forget to use Amazon Smile and Easyfundraising when shopping online, naming Home-Start Royston & South Cambridgeshire as your cause.

Thank you for your support during this very difficult time.

We’re there for parents when they need us the most, because childhood can’t wait.

Home-start Royston and South Cambridgeshire mapAs we all know, being a parent has never been easy. It can be lonely, frustrating, heart-breaking and overwhelming and life-changing events can happen to anyone.

Mental Ill health and post-natal depression, isolation, physical disability and illness, the end of a relationship, multiple-aged children and bereavement.

We offer:

  • Weekly home-visiting, which is free, non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential
  • Two family support groups in Royston and Buntingford
  • Expert guidance to other support services and resources
