Supporting Our Work
How YOU can make a real difference
By supporting Home-Start Merton you are helping parents who are struggling to give their children a better start in life. Family life can be hard and challenging for many parents. Life changing events such as bereavement, relationship breakdown, physical and mental illness, multiple births or even just feeling alone, can have a profound effect on families. With your help, we can be there for parents to guide and support them to find a better way to cope, and help them towards independence and a brighter future. At Home-Start Merton we depend heavily on donations from individuals, charitable trusts and companies. Everyone does need help at some point in their lives, so please help us to make a difference to a child’s life today. There are many ways you can help, so please enable us to make an even bigger difference to young family’s lives. These are some of the ways that you can help:-
