Home Start Thanet
Home-Start is a well-established organisation which offers support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children. We have offered a unique outreach service throughout Thanet for 30 years, recruiting and training volunteers to become Home-Start Mentors, who are usually parents themselves, to visit families who have at least one child under eleven.

Our friendly, non-judgemental approach enables parents to make positive changes, improving the quality of life and outcomes for themselves and their children. Home-Start Thanet is rooted in and serves local Thanet families. We believe that parents play the key role in ensuring that children have a happy and secure childhood, but even the most dedicated parents can face challenges at times and that is where the regular support of a volunteer really helps.

Volunteer with us!
We are looking for people of all ages, male or female who are parents themselves or have parenting experience to volunteer either as home visiting volunteer Mentors or as a Trustee.

We offer a short but comprehensive Preparation Course, which is fun and interactive. Upon completion you will be introduced to a local family to offer them weekly support, you will need to be able to commit between 2-4 hours per week, which is flexible to meet the demands of your own family. To find out more please contact Sharon Lewis, Executive Manager, or Karina on 01843 609665, email or visit the website:
