Southport & Formby

Fundraise, Donate & Get Involved

For every family we help there are many more we cannot. Our aim is to provide support for every family in Southport & Formby that needs it. With your support this could become a reality. You can make a real difference to families in Southport & Formby by either volunteering to be a home-visiting volunteer, a trustee, or by supporting our fundraising efforts.

Ways to help us:

Do you have a skill or a hobby that you could talk about or demonstrate to a small group of parents – just to make life interesting for those who feel they are vegetating?

Hold an event and raise some funds for us – we’d be very pleased to make an appearance and talk about the work of Home-Start Southport & Formby if you’d like us to.

Sponsor us

We send regular newsletters to families and volunteers and produce an annual report each year describing our work and achievements of the previous year– perhaps your company could sponsor the printing costs of one of these.

We have to find money for the set up and maintenance of our website — could your company sponsor the cost of our website?

Fundraise run

“I have seen that experiences such as homelessness, addiction, and poor mental health are often grounded in a difficult childhood. But I have also seen how positive protective factors in the early years can play a critical role in shaping our futures too….. science shows that the early years are more pivotal for future health and happiness, than any other period in our lifetime…..The early years are therefore not simply just about how we raise our children. They are in fact about how we raise the next generation of adults. They are about the society we will become.”
