Home-Start is a charity which believes the best start in life for a child begins at home with their family. To us, every family is special and our volunteers work with families in their own homes to help them cope when times get tough. Strong families raise happy children, helping them grow up to be the better parents of tomorrow. Home-Start Arun wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need in order to give their child the best start in life.
So if you live in the Arun district and think you may be in need of our help, call us in confidence today on 01903 889707, talk to your Health Visitor, or click here to send us a message.
Our volunteers visit families in their own homes, giving practical and emotional support, with the ultimate aim of improving life chances for vulnerable children.
But we need another kind of volunteer - trustees. Trustees are men and women who contribute to our leadership and direction so staff can manage the day-to-day operations and home-visiting volunteers can focus on supporting children and their families.

20 brave souls walked across hot coals to raise funds for Home-Start Arun, and raise funds they did – over £3000.
Huge thanks to everyone who took part, not just in for the Firewalk, but those who chopped wood with their bare hands and broke arrows using the strength in their necks – that needed to be seen to be believed!
Due to an outbreak of Alamaba Rot in woods local to Arundel we have postponed our Walk with Woofies. Alamba Rot is found in muddy woody areas and is known to be lethal for dogs. We will notify a new date ASAP.
Home-Start Walk with Woofies in partnership with Paws, Play and Stay - Walk or run the 5K route with or without a dog and help raise funds.
£5.00 enables a parent to attend a local family group for support whilst £100 provides the much needed training for a Volunteer to support a family.
If you are interested in participating please contact the Home-Start Arun office on 01903 889707 or email Admin@home-startarun.org.uk.
