Hope for Welwyn Hatfield families
BRITAIN’S leading family support charity, which provides aid for families with at least one child under five, is arriving in Hatfield.
Home-Start, will be situated at the YMCA at Countess Anne, in Hatfield, soon however the good work is set to begin tomorrow (Monday) when the charity start taking calls.
The Welwyn Hatfield branch, which hopes to help nearby families through what can be the most difficult period of their lives, has been supported by organisations and public bodies and has raised sufficient funding for its first two years of operation.
“But our priority is to continue raising funds,” said Caroline Spooner, Home-Start’s head of fundraisng, “we know the money we’ve secured so far is just the minimum necessary to get the charity off the ground. We’ll need to expand fast to meet the demands in the local community, and that will require more funding.”
MP Grant Shapps has been campaigning for Home-Start to open in Welwyn Hatfield for several years and has subsequently agreed to be their patron.
