Home-Start Warrington rely on the generosity and support of our volunteers, fundraisers and local businesses who sponsor and raise money on our behalf.
We are a small, lean charity that celebrate every penny raised! Whether you are an individual or a business looking to get involved and make a difference, we are grateful for any help you can give us; from becoming a corporate sponsor and organising fundraising initiatives, helping us collect money at events, donating money or offering your time as a volunteer to help our families or help out in the office.
How can your company and employee’s help to make a difference?
We are a local family & children’s support charity based in Orford covering all families in Warrington but mainly focussed on the inner wards. We train volunteers to help and support families in distress, to ensure the best start in life for their children. In 2014/15 we helped to support over 115 families and 261 children.
We don’t receive any government or local authority financial funding but have to rely on raising our own funds.
You can help by sponsoring one of our volunteers. This could be for as little as £20 per week (or 54p per hour!) and you would be helping to cover the costs of training and on-going support to one of our family support volunteers.
This could be by a monthly direct debit or a one-off yearly donation of only £1,000 (any donation could qualify for corporation tax relief).
We would be more than happy to meet with you to discuss your level of involvement or give a presentation to you and your staff to give you more of a background on who we are and how we operate.
If you feel you are unable, at this time, to support a volunteer you could maybe consider us as your ‘charity of the year’. Your staff could carry out a fund raising event or you could ask your staff to support us through payroll giving (further information can be found at http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/businesses/giving/payroll-giving.htm
We hope you will consider supporting us.
Please call Chris on 01925 652320 to talk through how you might be able to help.
