Snowflake Appeal

About our appeal

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 children across the UK.

We want to reach every child who needs us, as early as we can, so that they can have the best possible start in life.

Last year there were thousands of children we couldn't help when their families asked  -  because we just didn't have the funds.

Please support our 2017 Snowflake Appeal and give as much as you can, so that we can support children in ALL the families who are asking for help, and expand our services into new communities in need.

Download our fundraising pack today for some inspirational ideas.  From crocheting snowflakes to holding a cake sale and from getting sponsored on your snowboard to climbing up Snowdon – there is something for everyone.

Get involved today.

If families crumble, communities disintegrate, children suffer. By working in the home to make families strong, children thrive. Parents, as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the local community, improving the life-chances of the most disadvantaged families in the UK.
