Review of the Year – Jean Morgan, Chair of Trustees

Welcome to our Annual Review for the period April 2016 to March 2017. We have had a very busy, challenging, fulfilling and frustrating year.

We continued to support fragile local families with young children using our Big Lottery funding and in 2016/7 we worked with 73 families with 174 children. We have 29 trained volunteers who make the Home-Start magic happen. Families either find out about Home-Start support from their Midwife, Health Visitor, GP, or they self-refer, sometimes on-line. Funding from Big Lottery, the Action for Children contract and South Northamptonshire Council in particular means we have continued with all the key parts of the service – training local volunteers, matching them with a family and ensuring that we are meeting the specific needs of the whole family.
