Help us reach struggling families and Make Nice Things Happen for them this year.

John and Max sitting togetherEvery Christmas, Max loved to go to Granny’s house, where she’d cook Max’s favourite Nigerian dish, Jollof Rice. They didn’t have a Christmas tree, but there was plenty of food, gifts and love. When she died last year it was devastating for Max and John, Max’s dad. For Max, this was the second major death in his young life.

Being a parent has never been easy. It can be lonely, frustrating, heart breaking and over-whelming. Life-changing events can happen to anyone. That is why Home-Start is ready to support families through their toughest times.

Families need your help now. Please make a donation today.

We’ve partnered with The Masked Singer to help parents to share what is #BehindTheMask, so they don’t have to pretend everything is OK. We’re here for parents so that you can share your difficulties and find the support you need.

“Being a single dad, in an area where I didn’t know anyone, took its toll. Home-Start has taught me not to give up, that there’s help. They have taught me not to be ashamed of asking for help and to feel strength from getting help.”

“I’m so grateful for this help. It’s given us something to look forward to and be excited about. When Max opened the door he said “Daddy, whenever this lady turns up nice things happen” – he is right about that.” John Egbeyemi

But we can’t do it alone. It is only with your support that we can help those most in need. Please make a donation today.
