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 £74,000. In 2018 we are looking to support more families and will need £97,000 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 Notgrove Trust, The Henry Smith Charity, Sobell Foundation, Summerfield Trust and The KD Winstone Trust. Could your Trust support us in the future?


Through the hard work of trustees, volunteers and friends we generate about £4,000 a year through our own fundraising events. Could you or your business give us your support or sponsorship at one of our community fundraising events – or stage one on our behalf?


This financial year we have raised £10,000 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?
