Since opening in October 1997, Home-Start Barnet, Brent & Harrow have achieved:

Volunteers recruited and trained

Supported Families

Children we have worked with

“Home-Start did something that no counsellor, professional, friend or family member could do… You gave me the old Yasmine I once knew and was frightened I had lost. This is the mother my children need.”
