Support Us

As we no longer receive any government funding we rely on local businesses, organisations and the support of individuals.

These enable us to support even more families in Blaby District, Oadby and Wigston who are struggling through difficult times, including loneliness and isolation, ill health, post-natal depression, disabilities, bereavement, relationship difficulties, lone-parenting and coping with several pre-school children.

We are always happy to offer help and support to individuals of companies looking to hold fundraising events on our behalf. From tea parties to quiz nights to sponsored walks, there are many ways to raise funds to support our work. If you have any great ideas about fundraising events please contact us.

Local businesses can provide funding, which will be used directly in their community. They can also encourage their employees to participate in workplace fundraising, such as organising events at work and getting colleagues involved. Companies may wish to match fundraising and double whatever employees raise.

It is possible for individuals to make private donations to Home-Start Blaby District, Oadby and Wigston.
