I am an Ambassador for the wonderful charity Home Start and today I was delighted to have been invited to the lovely Kirstie Allsopp’s house (Location, Location, Location) as we were raising awareness for the wonderful charity’s campaign Reach The Child with some journalists www.reachthechild.org.uk
When parents suffer tragedy and hardship, their young children can suffer for a lifetime. That’s because a child’s experience in their first five years will dramatically shape the rest of their life. Home-Start is the only charity to go into homes nationwide to take the strain off families – often their only lifeline – before their situation becomes a crisis. Home-Start helps families cope so that they can provide the love and laughter their children need to flourish. For their today and their tomorrow, childhood must start now.
That’s why Mumsnet is also getting behind the Childhood Starts Now campaign to raise profile and funds so Home-Start can continue its vital work supporting more than 77,000 children and 36,000 families every year. Find out more: www.reachthechild.org.uk
