Welcome to Home-Start Blaby District, Oadby and Wigston.

We believe children need a happy and secure childhood and want to see every parent, in our community, have the support they need to give their children the best start in life.

We are a voluntary organisation that is committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under the age of five.

Volunteers offer regular support, practical help and friendship to families in our local community that need some extra help and support in their own homes, helping prevent family crisis and breakdown.

As well as volunteers visiting family homes, we also run a number of groups in the community that families can attend, to meet new people, feel involved, talk to others in the same situation and gain support from our staff and volunteers.

Whether you are a struggling family, a prospective volunteer or you are just looking for some general information on our services, this website will have all the information you will need.
