Home-Start Hounslow

Calling all Hounslow borough residents with parenting experience and a couple of spare hours a week: local families need you!

Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow is a local charity that offers emotional and practical support to struggling families through its home-visiting volunteer service.

Our volunteers are trained to support local families facing a variety of difficulties, including loneliness and isolation, ill health, post-natal depression, disabilities, bereavement, lone-parenting and coping with several pre-school children.

Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow volunteers are all ages and from all walks of life, all we ask is that you have parenting experience, that you attend our free preparation course and you can spare two or three hours a week to visit a family.

Our next free volunteer preparation course will be held over seven sessions on the following dates in February and March 2018, 09.30 am – 2.30pm, at our Hounslow office:

  • Tuesday 27th February
  • Tuesday 6th March
  • Wednesday 7th March
  • Tuesday 13th March
  • Wednesday 14th March
  • Tuesday 20th March
  • Wednesday 21st March

If you are interested in helping local families in need, either as a home-visiting volunteer or any other capacity, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact Angie Ahmed on 020 8487 8500 , or email

Throughout 2016 - 2017 Home-Start Hounslow supported 181 children in 88 families.
