About Us

Home-Start Epsom, Ewell and Banstead offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children, in the local communities of Epsom, Ewell and Banstead.

We offer a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers who are usually parents themselves, to visit families at home who have at least one child under 5 and offer informal, friendly and confidential support.

To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community.

Whilst all Home-Start schemes are guided by the same principles, each is an autonomous unit, individually registered with the Charities Commission, and with their own local management committee responsible for their own funding.

The charity is run by a board of Trustees who are responsible for the management and direction of the scheme. The team comprises; three part-time members and one full time member of staff, together with a network of trained volunteers who carry out the home-visiting parent support service.

During 2013/14 we had 50 volunteers assisting 125 families with 270 children – proving the continuing need for our service in the local community.

Home-Start Epsom, Ewell and Banstead have been supporting families since 1996.
