Home-Start Crawley, Horsham and Mid-Sussex (CHAMS) offers friendship and support to local families with a child under five years. We believe that children need a happy, secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life and helping them achieve their full potential. We are an independent registered charity that supports families where there are issues such as isolation, neglect, financial hardship, illness, disability, bereavement or multiple births. Even the most dedicated parents can face challenges that prevent them doing all they want for their children. When this happens, Home-Start CHAMS is there to help them.
Home-Start supports families where the parents are finding it difficult to cope with bringing up a young family. Trained volunteers visit families in their own homes. They offer time, friendship and help with the difficulties that parents with young children can face. Read More

The support I have received has been fantastic. I couldn’t have got support like it anywhere else.
We are grateful to have been awarded funding from the Big Lottery Fund of more than £294,000 over 3 years. This fantastic support is helping us reach more vulnerable local families.
