Welcome to Home-Start Merton

Mission Statement:
Home-Start Merton exists to enable families experiencing stress or difficulties to meet the needs of their children 0-8


To Home-Start, every family is special and we respond to each family’s needs through a combination of home visiting support and social events.

Home-Start’s aim is to empower families to enable them to function independently without the need for further intervention.

Established in June 1993, Home-Start Merton is now into its third decade of supporting families who may be in need of support at a critical period in their parenting.


“Home-Start raises self-confidence, improves social networks, reduces difficult behaviour on the part of the child and improves physical and mental health”
