Home-Start Cotswolds

Helping parents give their children the best possible start in life


How much it costs

We need:

  • £225   –   To  support and supervise a volunteer for one year.
  • £400   –  To recruit and train a volunteer.
  • £1300  –  To provide 1 year’s support to a family in need.

To run our service across the Cotswolds last year we needed £86,000. In 2019 we are looking to support more families and will need £100,000 to meet our objectives.

Here are the ways in which you could get involved in providing vital funds to help support local families:


Each year our main funding comes from charitable trusts. This financial year we have been supported by the John Armitage Charitable Trust, Peter Lang Children’s Trust, The Summerfield Trust, The Tampon Tax Fund, The Jack Lane Charitable Trust, The Henry Smith Charity and Sobell Foundation. Could your Trust support us in the future?


We value support from local companies. Last year we raised over £4,500 from the support of local businesses including St James Place, money.co.uk, SML Paintings and Coatings, Innogy Renewables UK and The Marlborough Arms. Can your business support us?


Through the hard work of trustees, volunteers and friends we generate about £3,000 a year through fundraising. In the past year we have held a fundraising Hike and also been supported through events such as Little Faringdon Bonfire Party, Bagendon Carol Concert, Barnsley Village Festival, Applause for a Cause and the Coln St Aldwyn Children’s Fete. Could you help us by running your own event in aid of Home-Start Cotswolds?


This financial year we have raised £12,000 through donations. Every pound counts and makes a difference. Why not use the Donate Now button to give a one-off amount to help our work?
