We regret to announce that Home-Start Tower Hamlets is ceasing activities with immediate effect.

This means volunteers will no longer be visiting and helping families from Monday 13th. August. We are really to sorry to close down. It is entirely due to the fact that we have not been able to secure enough funds to continue – even at a reduced level. Emails and voice messages will still be picked up (eventually) for the rest of the month.

Home-Start Tower Hamlets is a local charity that supports ordinary parents going through extraordinary times. We cover the borough of Tower Hamlets in East London. Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very difficult at times, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life, particularly if they have little support from family and friends when they need it most.

For some parents it’s a real struggle because they are also having to cope with difficult situations like post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, relationship issues or multiple birth. Whether you are seeking support, are a referrer, donor or volunteer we have information on this website to help you.

Do you feel you need support?

Are you having difficulty coping with the stresses of life bringing up a young family? If you live in Tower Hamlets and have at least one child under five, we may be able to help.
