About Us

What does Home-Start offer?

Home-Start Derby is the leading family support charity in Derby. We offer early intervention and support to vulnerable parents. We help parents gain the skills and confidence to ensure their children get the best possible in life and achieve their full potential.

We do this by matching volunteers and families. Volunteers support families by visiting them in their home, through group support and by linking with other organisations that may be able to help.

Home-Start Derby support families in and around Derby  and Amber Valley that have at least one child under five.


Home-Start Derby is a local charity set up in 1995 offering free support. Whilst we are affiliated to the national Home-Start UK we are independent, raise our own funding and develop our own support schemes.
