Every child Home-Start supports is as unique and fragile as a snowflake.
Right now thousands of young children are experiencing hardship or tragedy through no fault of their own.
Many families need support to get through some very tough times and this is where Home-Start can help. Sometimes we are their last chance.
You can raise money any time you like for the Snowflake Appeal. But we go big on it from 1 November to 31 January each year. You will help us reach thousands of fragile and vulnerable children across the UK.
