Help Us Fundraise
You can help us change a child’s life
Our work at Home-Start Teignbridge depends heavily on donations from people like you to fund our work with parents and children. Everyone needs help at some time in their life… please help us to make a difference to a child’s life today.
We believe that the best possible start in life for a child begins at home with their family. A nurturing, loving, stable family and home environment strongly determines a child’s future life chances. Children whose parents are struggling to cope can miss out on the love, routine and support that are vital for their future.
When children face severe illness, or disability, when their mother has postnatal depression, when their father loses a job and spirals into debt and mental ill health or alcohol abuse … our volunteers want to be there for them – to help them and their whole family until they can cope again. We want to reach each child in their vital early years so they can have the best possible start in life. Very often we are the last chance they have.
As a charity we are responsible for raising the funds we need to deliver our vital family support service. It is a continual challenge for us to create a sustainable flow of funds and we need your help to secure the future of our services. The more money we raise, the more children we can help.
Particularly during the current crisis, demand for our services has risen more than usual.
We need your help to enable our families to flourish
There are many ways your donation can make a difference from training our volunteers to supporting a family.
It costs £500 to train a volunteer and £100 per month to support a family.
You can make a one off donation or make a monthly commitment to sponsor a family.

Set up a fundraising event
From cake bakes to sky dives there is a way for everyone to get involved. We are always looking for people to help us run and initiate fundraising events. You may want to complete a personal challenge such as a long distance run, a bungee jump or a sky dive. Perhaps for you it’s all about having fun in which case a ‘pub quiz’ night, a team challenge or a sponsored event will be right up your street. If you’d rather have your cake and eat it, cake sales and coffee mornings could be for you.
