About us

Home-Start Barnet, Brent and Harrow is an independent charity which is part of the Home-Start UK network.

At the heart of our work is home visiting volunteer support. Families struggling with post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement, and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around two hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need. 

We also offer a wide range of other services, from perinatal mental health support and practical advice on managing household finances, to groups and events for families, and parenting programmes for families with older children.
