Home-Start Camden today officially launched their work into the neighbouring borough of Islington, and celebrated becoming Home-Start Camden & Islington.

Home-Start first began working in Islington in 1996 but financial pressures mean that it was forced to close its doors in 2015.

It is very good news that after three years Home-Start Camden & Islington have secured funding which means they will be able to work with families in Islington, bringing Home-Start’s life-changing support back to the borough.

Anne Darlington, Scheme Manager for Home-Start Camden & Islington said, “We are very pleased to have officially launched our work in Islington today. It is great that once again Home Start will be working in the borough with families who need our support now more than ever before . Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us especially out wonderful volunteers without whom we would not be here.”
