Can you give this Christmas?
Can you give this Christmas?

Nina* is a Home-Start mother who has a toddler and twin girls. She is worried about being able to afford both presents and food this festive time. By donating a gift, you can relieve the pressure on Nina and other parents like her this Christmas.  

Many of our families will be worrying about how to give their children the festive season they would love them to have. For some parents, the choice will be between a festive dinner or presents for their children. For others, they may already be struggling to afford both heating and food, especially with the recent cut to universal credit. 

By buying a gift from one of our Amazon lists, you will be giving more than just a present to these families. 

Simply select a gift from one of the age categories below and add it to your shopping basket. When you go to check out, you will see Home-Start Barnet listed as a delivery option: simply select this, add your gift message and checkout. 

We’ll do the rest.  

Help us to give Nina the opportunity to create a truly special festive time for her children this Christmas.  

Thank you.
