Give the gift of support this Christmas


As the Christmas season approaches, we are calling on the community to join our Christmas appeal and provide much-needed support to local families who are facing financial stress, anxiety, and isolation. The responsibility of caring for young children becomes even more daunting during this time, and the magic of the season is often overshadowed by the challenges they encounter. Loneliness, social comparison, and the absence of meaningful connections can cast a long shadow over what should be a joyful time of year.


At Home-Start South Warwickshire we are committed to making a difference in the lives of these families. Our dedicated volunteers provide practical and emotional support, offering hope, comfort, and assurance to families right in the comfort of their own homes. In a season that can be particularly challenging for many, Home-Start volunteers are the beacons of light that guide these families through the darkness.


Marie, Head of Operations at Home-Start South Warwickshire, emphasizes the significance of our Christmas appeal, saying,


"The holiday season can be an incredibly tough time for families with young children. As Gingerbread, the UK's leading charity for lone parents, reminds us, there are approximately 1.8 million single parent families facing the challenges of isolation and loneliness. The holiday season can magnify these feelings, as we're bombarded with images of picture-perfect family gatherings and the pressure to create a flawless Christmas for our children.
Our mission is to ease the burden of loneliness by providing the vital support of a dedicated befriending volunteer. But we can't achieve this without the generous support of our community. Your help can be the beacon of hope these parents need, as together, we can work to reduce isolation and loneliness during this special time of year. Your support is invaluable, and it can truly brighten the lives of those who need it most."

To support our Christmas appeal, you can make a donation on our website at www.homestartsouthwarwickshire.org.uk/christmas or via our Facebook page.


For just £20, you can make a profound impact by paying for a family to be visited and supported by a Home-Start volunteer, providing the support they need to cope and thrive in the run up to Christmas.


Your donation could assist in numerous ways, including:

  • Helping a single mother attend a doctor's appointment by providing childcare.

  • Providing emotional support to a mother coping with postnatal depression.

  • Assisting a family in budgeting for food and other essentials.

  • Offering friendship and companionship to a family feeling isolated and helping connect them with their local community.


Your donation can make a profound difference, bringing the spirit of the season to families in South Warwickshire and ensuring that no one faces these challenges alone.


Thank you


The Team at Home-Start South Warwickshire
